Openfig would as you say open the figure visible, but as Yuri pointed out this is not a solution to the original question. Yuris solution works by changing the default of openfig, i do not know any other way of doing that.

However, I do not like to edit builtin functions. It may cause trouble with later updates and require configuration of the computer opening the fig-files. Therefore I found a solution that did not require any configuration of the computer opening the .fig file.
This is necessary for me because my figures must open visible on other peoples computer. My fuction imports the data of the figure, edits the appropiate visibility parameter and saves it to the same .fig file. Therefore the figure will open visible on all computers.

The drawback of my solution is that it requires an extra import export step. I think this can be avoided by using the handle2struct function, but I do not have the time to look into it now. You should compare mine and Yuris solution to see wich works best for you.
