How to stop subsequent plots outputting to the current pane?

1 view (last 30 days)
On this page it states:
Description
subplot divides the current figure into rectangular panes that are numbered rowwise. Each pane contains an axes object. Subsequent plots are output to the current pane.
How do I get it to stop doing that?
If I've called subplot previously then I call plot in the command window to quickly check some data the new plot updates the last plotted subplot.
Thank you for your help in advance.

To force MATLAB to create new figure, you need to call figure function before calling the plot.

ok, so if I wanted to do a quick plot to check some data without it updating the last subplot I would type
figure; plot(x,y);
in the command window?
