Printing with a Specific Paper Size

By default, MATLAB uses 8.5-by-11 inch paper. This example shows how to change the paper size to 8.5-by-14 inches by selecting a paper type (Legal).

Using the Graphical User Interface

  1. Select Page Setup from the figure window's File menu, and select the Paper tab.
  2. Select the Legal paper type from the list under Paper size. The width and height fields update to 8.5 and 14, respectively.
  3. Make sure that Units is set to inches.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Open the Print dialog box and print the figure.

Using MATLAB Commands

Set the PaperUnits property to inches, and the PaperType property to Legal.

Alternatively, you can set the PaperSize property to the size of the paper, in the specified units.
