## How do you overlap two figures in MATLAB?

Direct link to this answer

- Open both figures.
- Select “Show Plot Tools and Dock Figure” in both figures (see figure below)
- Select one of the plot lines and copy [CTRL+C]
- Paste [CTRL+V] in the other plot.
- Change the line properties to your liking.

**How do I show two plots in MATLAB?**

To create a plot that spans multiple rows or columns, specify the span argument when you call nexttile . For example, create a 2-by-2 layout. Plot into the first two tiles. Then create a plot that spans one row and two columns.

### How do you keep plotting in the same figure in MATLAB?

Direct link to this answer

- >> help figure.
- So, if you want to always plot on the same figure, you can use h=figure(1), which may not be good in some cases because it over-write the existing figure 1.
- Or, you can use close() to close the existing figure first.
- In any case, remember figure has a handle.

**How do you join two figures?**

Merge shapes

- Select the shapes to merge. Press and hold Shift to select multiple shapes. The Shape Format tab appears.
- On the Shape Format tab, click Merge Shapes, and then pick the option you want. The order in which you select the shapes to merge may affect the options shown to you.

#### What is hold in MATLAB?

The hold function determines whether new graphics objects are added to the graph or replace objects in the graph. hold on retains the current plot and certain axes properties so that subsequent graphing commands add to the existing graph. hold off resets axes properties to their defaults before drawing new plots.

**How can you use the two shapes on the left to create the single shape on the right?**

Merge shapes Select the shapes you want to merge: press and hold the Shift key while you select each shape in turn. (If you don’t select any shapes, then the Merge Shapes button in step 2 will be grayed out.) On the Shape Format tab, in the Insert Shapes group, select Merge Shapes, and then pick the option you want.

## What does set GCA do?

Description. ax = gca returns the current axes (or standalone visualization) in the current figure. Use ax to get and set properties of the current axes. If there are no axes or charts in the current figure, then gca creates a Cartesian axes object.

**How can several graphs for the same function be plotted on the same window * 1 point contour plots Bode plots 3 D plots ND plots?**

How can several graphs for the same function be plotted on the same window? Explanation: Contour plots allow the plot of multiple curves of the same function on different constant levels of the function.

### Which command can be used to generate multiple graphs in the same window *?

The contour command is used to generate graph of the same function on different levels while the hold on command is used to generate graphs of multiple functions in the same window.

**How do I make two vectors equal in MATLAB?**

- maxlen = max(length(x1_lower), length(x2_lower));
- x1_lower(end+1:maxlen) = 0;
- x2_lower(end+1:maxlen) = 0;

#### How do you plot 4 figures in MATLAB?

Direct link to this answer

- hAxes(1) = subplot(2,2,1);
- plot( hAxes(1), 1:length(x),x(6,:))
- hAxes(2) = subplot(2,2,2);
- plot( hAxes(2), 1:length(y),y(6,:))
- hAxes(3) = subplot(2,2,3);
- plot( hAxes(3), 1:length(z),z(6,:))
- hAxes(4) = subplot(2,2,4);
- plot( hAxes(4), 1:length(f),f(6,:))

**What does figure do in MATLAB?**

figure creates figure graphics objects. figure objects are the individual windows on the screen in which MATLAB displays graphical output. figure creates a new figure object using default property values.
