Re: problem with savefig
Posted:

I have the same problem. I tried to check which programs are holding onto the file in windows (using Sysinternal process explorers as instructed in *1). I did not find any.
Matlab will not work at times and work a few seconds later. I usually put a pause(x), x>=3 to help, although it is not 100% reliable so if you have a loop that saves many pics it will interrupt randomly.
This is very annoying. Please advise.
Thanks.
