I have a gui that I created without using guide. There are various configurations, and I switch between them by hiding gui elements. This works great up until the user tries to do a screen print, where this piece of code from "prepare.m" is invoked by the "print" function:
%Need to see everything when printing hiddenH = get( 0, 'showhiddenhandles' ); set( 0, 'showhiddenhandles', 'on' )
Not clear why we need to see everything when printing, makes no sense to me. If I want to show the hidden handles, I'd make them visible. Any suggestions?

"set(0, 'showhiddenhandles', 'on')" does not make anything visible. It allows to include the handles a.g. when getting the children of an HG-object. See also:
