Colorbar font size decreases upon export

19 views (last 30 days)
When I export my contours with colorbar labels, the font size is being decreased. Take, for example:
testx = 1:10; testy = 1:10; testc = [1:10].*ones(10,10);
c = colorbar; c.Label.String = 'string'; c.Label.FontSize = 14;
Make this figure, go to File > Export setup > Export (I'm exporting to .eps) and the colorbar label will shrink. I have found other answer that would let me maintain a minimum size for ALL text, but I'd like the tick labels to remain small. Is there a way to prevent this?

Instead of manually saving the figure, you can prefer to save figure by command. It won't shrink the figure.
Refer to this for reference.

See attached. export.PNG is the result when using export from the File menu in the figure. Notice the small font size on the colorbar label. It had was bigger before exporting. print.PNG is the result from trying your method above. Notice that there is no padding around the outermost features of the figure.

Update: I tried the print method on some other plots and they maintain some white space around the edges. Perhaps it has something to do with my legend placement? That's the main difference I see.

Have you tried exportgraphics(), if youre using r2020a or later? Or try using saveas().

exportgraphics worked well, though I don't have access to r2020a for all my codes.
