Agreed, this needs a more minimal example or please attach the files that your function is loading that cause this error to come up. With a simpler script using 10 semilogx calls, I get no such error.

Thanks for your bug report. It seems strange to me that the offending line is the one you indicate. Setting figure's 'paperunits' property should only perform a simple conversion of the 'paperposition' property.

Can you provide a self consistent example (i.e. that doesn't depend on external data) so that others can reproduce the error by just copying/pasting your script?

function plot_stuff(set)
for k=1:numel(files)
    if regexp(files{k},sprintf('^set_%d_',set))
        hold on
set(gcf(),'paperunits','centimeters'); %Error "A(I,J,...): index to dimension 2 out of bounds; value 117 out of bound 1"

set(gcf(), 'paperposition', [0 0 7 5]);
print('-dfig', '-color', '-textspecial',sprintf('set_%d.fig',set));
hold off

Same error regardless if I am using gnuplot or fltk
