## Help with legend

 Could someone try the following in Matlab and send me the resulting image?  I'm trying to test whether the automatic positioning of the legend box takes in to account the axes ticks. --- Start Code --- clf; plot (rand (3,3)); set (gca, 'xtick', 1:0.25:3, 'ytick', 0:0.1:1); set (gca, 'ticklength', [0.03 .05]); hl = legend (); print ('legtst.png', '-dpng'); --- End Code --- Thanks, Rik

If no location is specified, it defaults to ’NorthEast” Ben
