How can I copy a MATLAB figure to ms word while retaining figure labels?

2 views (last 30 days)
I labelled the x-axis of the MATLAB figure as follows:
xlabel(['Ambient temperature, ',char([0xD835 0xDF0F]),''])
However, the unicode character (\tau) is missing in the copied figure. Please what should i do?

copygraphics is a quick and easy way to copy a figure or axes to the clipboard so you can paste it into a document. For example, if you're copying the entire figure,
where fig is the figure handle. Then paste into word. I tested it with your xlabel and had no issues.
Also, here's a simplified alternative to your xlabel, though the tau character may be slightly different,
xlabel('Ambient temperature, \tau')

Thank you for your response Adam. I prefer this variant of the tau character. I tried saving the figure as a .png or .jpg type and then paste in ms word which worked.
