Useful Figure Management Utilities
Updated 4 Dec 2019
This package contains 3 trivial figure management utilities I can't live without:
SHOWMETHEFIGS Allow user to cycle between all figures by hitting any key
FIGSHIFT Cascades current figure window away from previous figure
FILLSCREEN Set a figure size to completely fill the screen. NOTE: There's a better version built into MATLAB since R2018a. Just set the WindowState property to 'maximized'
