How to define paper orientation in export_fig for pdfs

2 views (last 30 days)
I try to create a pdf file with a figure and it always creates file with landscape orientation. No matter what parameters I put in place. Code example:
figure('PaperSize',[20.98404194812 29.67743169791]); plot(AvgIndustryLP(1:end,1),'-g'); set(gcf, 'Color', 'w'); export_fig ('PaperOrientation','portrait','test.pdf')
Does any one know how to define paper orientation for pdfs in export_fig?

The export_fig submission description, help text and the web page all clearly state that the figure is saved as it appears on screen. Therefore if you want to save a figure in landscape, make it landscape on screen. E.g.
figure('Position', [100 100 500 300]);
export_fig test.pdf
The PaperSize property you set is ignored by export_fig, and export_fig has no PaperOrientation option.
