RGB triple of color name, version 2 does not work with Matlab2023

3 views (last 30 days)
Hi i am very new to matlab and was looking for ways to introduce more color range rather than just the predefined colors, i stumbled upon an answer in this communitty where someone told to use 'RGB triple of color name, version 2' from filexchange. The syntax i used to define color was like
s.LineProperties(9).MarkerEdgeColor=rgb('stone') % plots a dark silver color.
but as i am now trying to use online version of Matlab which is 2023, it doesnt recoginze the word 'stone' for instance or any other combination of words like it use to in 2022 version .with version 2022 i could simply write rgb('dark green') and it would plot this color. Is there any way around in version 2023 because i have used that function in many scripts and it would take a huge amount of time to undo all of them.

In MATLAB Online, open the Add-Ons Explorer (the icon that looks like three cubes in the Environment section of the Home tab of the toolstrip.) Search for and add this add-on to your MATLAB Online then you should be able to use it just like you have been in your desktop installation.

on my desktop version i got two outputs
\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB Add-Ons\Functions\RGB triple of color name, version 2\rgb.m % Shadowed
\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB Add-Ons\Collections\Climate Data Toolbox for MATLAB\cdt\rgb.m
seems like the suspicion was correct.

I installed the climate data tool box for online version also but it is shadowed now. How to unshadow the climate box plugin in this case ?
