so as usually, nothing is easy with matlab
trying to convert a program over to tall cell arrays
and its when i do something as simple as
new_array = tall(old_array)
I get my new_array sure
But alas, it breaks basically every single thing else in the program
For example, strcat doenst work with tall arrays
nor does cat for that matter. What good a data type of tall array do when it breaks every single other function you have used.

Hi Robert. As mentioned by other community members, "cat" is supported by tall arrays. However, "strcat" is not currently supported. As a workaround, you can try using the "+" operator to concatenate strings in tall arrays.
str1 = tall(["John ","Mary "]);
str2 = tall(["Smith","Jones"]);
str1 + str2
ans = 1×2 tall string array "John Smith" "Mary Jones"
