After I connected my mesh_processing_toolbox, to Git hub its documentation is no longer visible in the "Examples" tab (it was before).
I didn't change anything, to the package.
Anyone know how I could fix this. The documentation matters.
Thank you for help.

My use-case is to have an HTML documentation page. And you're correct that none of my submissions currently have that.
Using doc('MyFunction') is nice, but having more options for the layout would be nicer, and the publishing tool looked to me like it is supposed to do that.

To answer the question : after looking at the other file exchange contributors I figured out it has to be in .mlx format.
I still have to try, and will be back here to validate.

I really hope this answer is not correct. I can't add a .mlx placeholder to my submissions, because mlx has a higher precedence level than m.
And it contradicts the FEX documentation, but that might just be a lack of updating.

Ok Rik, so I did it here for example.
I named it my_function_name_ls.mlx as you can see.
This way I have not a doc, but some illustrated examples, let's say. The doc is however well included in the package as you can see in the Github.
The only thing is that in the examples tab I have in first position this file with my function name and no preview available.

Ok, I actually still have the same problem (preview not available for documentations one connected to Github).
My live scripts are visible, but they are not equivalent to file documentation.
Thank you for any help / tip.

I have made a Mathworks employee aware of this issue when I happened to have contact, and I'm sure that person has forwarded that bug-report to the appropriate team. My personal estimate is that it will take until the next big update to the FEX until it is solved.
