Hello, I have a problem with saving the figure, I am the new user of qt octave. Please help me for the same...... If i have the code for plotting
figure(10)
i=100;
h1=semilogy(t,y,'o')
hold on
h2=semilogy(t,f,'r')
set(gca,'Xtick',1:5:20);
set(gca,'FontSize',30,'Fontname','arial');
set(gca,'linewidth',2)
set(h1,'markersize',10);
set(h2,'linewidth',2,'linestyle','');
but I dont know the exact command for saving in octave.....I think its something save filename.eps or so???
what to use after plotting???  regards, reena

Please don't toppost.
I don't why your eps comes monochrome. I mostly use emf on windows,
and these come out in colour. If you give more details (Octave
version, where you obtained it, OS) then perhaps someone else on the
list can help.

To get color either add "color" or use the color eps device.
print color filename.eps
print depsc filename.eps
For more info, take a look at ...
help print

I have been using the command in the form "print" then "d" (as noted, standing for "device") followed by the file type, then the filename with a suitable filetype. For example, to print a pdf file with name "figure.pdf", that would be
print dpdf figure.pdf
If you need a different format, change the filetype after the "d" and at the end of the filename. You can produce at least the following types
print dpng figure.png (portable network graphics)
print dsvg figure.svg (scalable vector graphics)
print djpg figure.jpg (err ... joint something group I think)
print dps figure.ps (postscript)
print deps figure.eps (encapsulated postscript  as noted, monochrome)
print depsc figure.epsc (encapsulated postscript, colour)
print deps figure.eps2 (encapsulated postscript2, monochrome)
print depsc figure.eps2c (encapsulated postscript2, colour)
If you have not set a particular folder to print to, you might have to search for it! You can specify the whole path if you want to avoid that.
eg for a png on the desktop of "user"
print dpng /home/user/Desktop/figure.png
However good you think Octave is, it's much, much better.
