A colleague is giving me several fig files, each of which contains several subplots. What is the way that I can "copy" a subplot to a new standalone figure, including lines, x/y labels, and title? I would like to insert this in the following code, so I can automatically generate a figure for every subplot in the workspace.
% Make some fake figures
for iFig = 1:3
for iSub = 1:4
figure(iFig);
subplot(2,2,iSub);
end
end
% Get handles to all subplots
hAx = findobj('type', 'axes');
for iAx = 1:length(hAx)
axes(hAx(iAx));
% Do something here to generate a new figure containing
% lines/labels copied from this axis
end

You'll want to use copyobj.

Thank you! This code solved my problem. All I needed to do was to tweak the axes position values to fit my monitor resolution.
