Matlab &Word text

  1. Apr 23, 2015 #1
    I used the label for y-axis as below and plot the figure.
    Code (Text):

    but when I copy the figure in the word, the y-label text is corrupted. What should I do?

    When I copy the figure from "Figure/Edit/copy figure" and paste it into word, the figure is correctly pasted but when I restart the computer the text on the y-axis corrupts. However if I open Matlab again and do "Figure/Edit/copy figure and past" all the earlier figures will become corrected!

    You should specify the parameters when copying to clipboard, see for instance


    where the clipboardformat parameter takes on the following values:


    The flow that you are follow it's rather strange, one shouldn't restart Matlab in order to see correctly those figures!!!
    I would use the saveas command. In this way you keep a figure file external to the word document for later use (presentation, sharing etc.)
