Markus and the group,

Thanks for the reply. I attached a modified version of the program that should work on your machines. The x and y values are fake.

My goal is to print the figure to pdf, so the resulting pdf is attached. In the x-axis label, the bottom parts of the q, y, (, and ) are chopped off. What would fix this?

Thanks for any help.

Brad Davis, Ph.D., S.E.

I cannot reproduce your exampls because I don't have the data for the variables "f"
and "ModeShape".
But here some general questions:
Which graphics toolkit are you using? Have you tried with other graphics toolkits?
What happens if you execute one of the following lines before your code?
close('all'); graphics_toolkit('qt');
close('all'); graphics_toolkit('fltk');
close('all'); graphics_toolkit('gnuplot');

Do you see the issues on screen or when plotting to a file?
