I've attached a changeset that handles the initializes the tightinset before children are added to the axes.

(file #28673)

There remains a small bug. The tightinset() is not updated when the axes are first created.

A start would be to add a call to sync_positions() to axes::update_font().

I'm looking at another changeset to simplify subplot.m (reduce the special gnuplot stuff). I'l wait on that until this is resolved.

I sent you an email about the fact that this changeset
introduces a regression with respect to subplots.
I looked at the changeset, but could not find where it
causes the size of a subplot to go wrong.

Anyhow, if I rollback this changeset the problem goes away.

I hope you can find the problem since this changeset also
does a lot of good!

The frontend doesn't initialize the "tightinset" correctly.

Running the script above, produces the result below.

The tight inset should be set equal to the difference between the axes bounding box (including the title, {x,y,z}labels and {x,y,z}ticklabels) and the axes "position" (which is just the bounding box for the axes' plot area). See the link below for more information.


The "looseinset" is an undocumented Matlab property. There is some info on it from non-mathworks sources.


(Note: This bug/feature prevents legend() from consistently rendering a proper result)
