Matlab discussion

  1. Nov 24, 2011 #1
    Dear Friends
    I am plotting some solution of differential equation in matlab and successfully completed but while attempting to save that plot as bitmap format the background of the plot become black with the axis and scale are hidden inside that background. I herewith attached the bitmap format of the plot. Suggest some ideas to help me out of this problem.

    Could you copy the figure from matlab and paste it in paint?

    Generally, I just copy and paste it in word file instead of saving figures. I never encountered black problem.

    If you open the figure with: figure('Color', 'w') it should force the background to be white.

    Colourmap looks off as well; the surface is clearly smooth, yet the colours jump from cyan to blue. Perhaps printscreen + paste is best as the above poster said.
