I want to show only the legend for a group of data in MATLAB.
The reason I want to do this is that I want to export the legend to .eps, but I only want the legend, not the plots.
Is there a way to turn off the plots and remove them from the figure, but still show just the legend centered?
I think that you need to "hide" the elements you don't want in your plot, leaving out only the legend. For example,
clear all; close all; figure; p1 = plot([1:10], [1:10], '+-'); hold on; p2 = plot([1:10], [1:10]+2, 'o--'); legend('text1', 'text2'); set(p1, 'visible', 'off'); set(p2, 'visible', 'off'); set(gca, 'visible', 'off');
