Hi!
Perhaps this:
figure
hold on
plot(1:10, randi(5,10,1))
plot(1:10, randi(10,10,1))
% Modify x1 and x2 based on your requirements
x1 = 5 ;
x2 = 5 ;
leg = legend('Plot1','Plot2');
leg.ItemTokenSize = [x1, x2];
Hope this helps

Maybe this workaround:
figure
hold on
plot(1:10, randi(5,10,1))
plot(1:10, randi(10,10,1))
% Modify x1 and x2 based on your requirements
x = [10, 10] ; % length
[legh, legObj, ~, ~] = legend('Plot1','Plot2' );
hlegObj = findobj(legObj,'type','line');
lineW = 2 ; % Line Width
set(hlegObj,'LineWidth',lineW);
legh.ItemTokenSize = x ;
legh.Box ='off' ;

Do you know how to increase the marks of values on the x and y axis in matlab? The X axis should be by year to year
