I have a questions regarding the stretching of Matlab figures. Below you see a figure with three subplots. This was simply generated by
figure;
subplot(1,3,1);
subplot(1,3,2);
subplot(1,3,3);
Now when I stretch the figure in horizontal direction the subplots become larger. Which is exactly what I want. However, the margin/padding w.r.t. to the border of the window becomes much larger. Furthermore, the spacing between the plots also becomes larger. How can you make sure that this is fixed?
The red border shows the picture I would get when I export it to .jpg or .png, for example. And the blue border describes what I want with space reduction between the plots.

set(gca,'LooseInset',get(gca,'TightInset'))
This does not work and never worked. I don't know why so many people recommend this...
