Changing figure settings

Jiro's Pick this week is SetFigPaper by jmrplens.

Many of you may know export_fig by Yair (originally created by Oliver Woodford) which gives you many options for exporting your figures. jmrplens's setfigpaper reminded me of this. It's much simpler in the things it does, but it's elegantly simple, with options that are typically needed for formating your figure.

Here is a sample figure from the example code that is included with this entry.

Then you call setfigpaper with appropriate parameters.


What's impressive is that he has tested this with over 70 different plot types (see the help for this function), including parallelplot which was introduced in R2019a.

New Reputation Points and Short-Term Leaderboard

Oh, and one more thing. We have introduced a new type of recognition called "reputation points", which you can earn based on some activities, such as receiving a 4 or 5-star rating. But what's exciting is that if your entry gets Picked as a Pick of the week, you get 50 points!

Another new feature is the Short-Term Leaderboard. Before, you only saw the all-time leaderboard, and for those of you who started contributing later in the game had a difficult time getting on the top leaderboard. But we believe people should be recognized just as much for the recent contributions as for the legacy contributions from many years ago. With the current leaderboard, you can view the rankings by week, month, year, or all-time.
