To decrease the margins of a figure it is possible to use the command
set(gca,'position',[.05,.05,.9,.9]);
I would like to know how to do it with a multiplot figure. Using the method above it will maximise the plot area of 1 subplot (which will obfuscate the other sub plots)
I would like to reduce the wide white margins on the sides of the attached example. (fig and png attached)
Thanks in advance for your help.

Create and position individual axes yourself instead e.g.
hAxes(1) = axes( 'Position', [0.05 0.05 0.27 0.9] );
hAxes(2) = axes( 'Position', [0.05 0.37 0.27 0.9] );
hAxes(3) = axes( 'Position', [0.05 0.69 0.27 0.9] );

As suggested by Adam, you could define the individual axis by yourself from the MATLAB Command Window or you could also use plotools function to interactively customize the graph.
For using this, you will have to keep the 'test figure.fig' figure open and then just run the following command on the MATLAB Command Window:
>> plotools
This will let you customize graph based on your requirement using the GUI. Hope this helps!
