I use this command in matlab


in order to make a tikzpicture out of this matlab plot. My MWE in PdfLaTeX



The result looks like thisenter image description here

The figure stretches into the right margin... Seems like Matlab2tikz does not count enough space for the tick labels on the left so the figure is too wide. Why is that? I know about workaround like


but I rather look for a clean solution. There must be, no? Because this is the whole point of using Matlab2Tikz to have flush and nicely fitted figures.

Any help appreciated, thanks a lot!

PS: Matlab2Tikz and PgfPlots are up to date.

    The link you give to the matlab tikz code is now dead, which may make it difficult for anyone to provide further assistance with this question. – Dai Bowen Sep 11 '16 at 20:28

    Check if you have scale only axis in the axis options in fig_blank.tex. – Torbjørn T. Nov 20 '16 at 13:54
