Controlling actual print graphics size....
Posted:

I've been trying to make a pattern for a stencil to redo markings for heat ranges on the old welder. They're spread over a distance of somewhat less than the 10" length of the overall silkscreen area which seemed like ought to be able to get onto an 11" page w/ the halfinch hard margins at bottom/top.
I tried
% set axes location to fill figure area vertically axes; rect=get(gca,'position'); rect(2)=0; rect(4)=1; set(gca,'position',rect)
set(gcf,'color','w'), set(gca,'visible','off') hlin=line([zeros(size(lo_meas'))+.27,zeros(size(lo_meas'))+.35]', ... [lo_meas' lo_meas']','color','k','linewidth',4); h_txt=text(zeros(size(lo_meas'))+.375,lo_meas',num2str(lo_amp'), ... 'fontweight','bold','fontsize',18);
This makes a nicelooking figure on screen. To print, I then used the Export Setup menu, set the figure size in inches to a vertical height of 10" and checked the "Expand axes to figure" button and did a test print. It comes out with the vertical axis about 83/8" instead of 10" and centered on the page vertically (leaving roughly 11/4" top/bottom). I've had no luck managing to change that result.
Anybody have a klew how to convince Matlab to print 10" tall figure actually 10" tall?
