Save/export uifigure with panels as vector image format

45 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way to save/export uifigure with panels as vector image format? I am trying to output publication quality figures with multiple complex subplots, which is why I used the panel feature to group subplots together.
I am currently using 2019a.

What's the "panel feature" mentioned in your question? Are the subplots embedded in an app? Are you trying to save the entire figure or just a particular axes on the figure?

As per my understanding it is required to export the uifigure along with the panels in the vector format.
With R2020b MATLAB supports a function called exportapp()” which can capture all graphical content is captured, including UI components.
Refer to the Documentation on export app.
As a work around with R2019a
hgexport()” is used to write the figure to the EPS file which is in the vector format. Refer to the documentation on hgexport for more information.
print()” is another alternative which save to specific file format. Refer to the documentation of print for more information.

getframe is also supported in r2020b for uifigures.
See a review of getframe and exportapp in this Community Highlight
Note that as of r2020b, hgexport and print do not support figures created with the uifigure function including apps built in AppDesigner. For uifigures, see this summary of methods.
