Newly installed 2019b does not open .fig files

11 views (last 30 days)
Quite simply, when I try to open .fig files with my new installation of MATLAB, it just opens another MATLAB instance with no viewable figure. This seems to happen wether I am opening a file made on this machine or elsewhere. Has anyone experienced this before?

Hey Brandon,
It sounds like you are trying to open your figure files from outside of MATLAB (e.g. Windows Explorer), and it is pulling up a new instance instead of opening inside the already-open instance of MATLAB. This sounds similar to an issue detail here (about ".m" files).
Also, make sure that you have your system set up to open ".fig" files in your newly-installed version of MATLAB, not any old version you may still have installed.
If you can't get anything else working, you should be able to the ".fig" files from within MATLAB, and I would expect them to open in the same instance.
