Plotting frequency with different vector error

I am trying to plot a frequency graph with the center at the origin but I keep getting the error that the two vectors are different lengths. Is there anyway to fix this?

What is size() of your independent variable? What is size() of your dependent variable? Which plotting routine are you using?

This is the Code Im using, im not sure what the sizes are. I tried to use the 'origin' function and the limits but it still didnt work. If you could look at it it would be great thank you.
fs =48000; %sampling frequency
Ts= 1/fs; %sampling duration
symbolrate = 1000; %transmitted pulses/second should be an integer divisor of fs
symbol_length = fs/symbolrate; %number of samples in one symbol
pulse = ones(1,symbol_length); %1 pulse hamm/hann delete 1
textin = input('Enter ASCII text for transmission: ' , 's'); % textin can be anything
data_input = dec2bin(double(textin)); %change txtin which is 10# to 2#
[number,length_data] = size(data_input);
data0 = reshape(data_input' , 1,number*length_data); %change the data of matrix to row vector
[number,length_data] = size(data0);
for i = 1:length_data %change 1 bit to 2bit for 4pam
data(i) = bin2dec(data0(i));
[number, length0] = size(data);
symbol = 2*data-1; % process of 2PAM need to change for OOK and for 4PAM
for i = 1: length0
for j=1:symbol_length
signal((i-1)*symbol_length + j) = symbol(i) * pulse(j);
index = -Ts/2: Ts: ((length0*symbol_length)-1)*Ts; %Change length of data
% spectrum_index = -fs/2:fs/2; ((length0*symbol_length)-1)*fs
% index = -Ts/2: symbol_length
% graph= zeros
plot(index, signal); %time delay in front of line 39
axis([0 1.5*length0*symbol_length*Ts -2 2]);

hold on
grid on
x=linspace(-200,200) ;
y=linspace(0,0) ;
plot(x,y,'k-') ;
plot(y,x,'k-') ;
ax = gca;
ax.XAxisLocation = 'origin';
ax.YAxisLocation = 'origin';
% PlotAxisAtorigin(index,signal)
% xlim([-10, 600])
title('spectrum of 2PAM signal');

What input are you using? When I tried in R2020a on Mac and used 'hello' as the ASCII input, I had no problem.

To get the desired shift so that the graph is symmetric about the origin, you can make the following changes in your code where you plot the freq’ variable:
sz = length(freq)/2;
k = [-sz:-1,1:sz];
