I have a function that closes all figures except my main figure (GUI1)
% Close figures
fig1h = findall(0,'type','figure','Tag','GUI1'); %Keep this open as its the main GUI figure
figh = findall(0,'type','figure');
other_figures = setdiff(figh, fig1h)
delete(other_figures)
I wanted to modify this to also keep open a 2nd GUI whos tag is "LTF" but its not keeping open this 2nd GUI figure.
% Close figures
fig1h = findall(0,'type','figure','Tag','GUI1'); %Keep this open as its the main GUI figure
figh = findall(0,'type','figure');
figl=findall(0,'type','figure','Tag','LTF');
other_figures = setdiff(figh, fig1h)
other_figures = setdiff(other_figures, figl)
delete(other_figures)

We can't duplicate your GUI; set a breakpoint in the routine and step through to see what is going on internally. Superficially, other than some inefficiencies in duplicated code where could use compound search don't see anything obvious.

ha ha ... it does work, I had changed the "name" of the figure and not the "Tag".
