Thanks for your bug report. This is a long-standing known issue with OpenGL plotting, closing as a duplicate of but #33180.

If you need a workaround to print non-visible plots, use the gnuplot toolkit instead:

graphics_toolkit gnuplot

This must be run before opening any figures. Add it to your startup files if you want to make this change permanent for you.

When you try to print a plot in figure that has the property 'visible' to 'off', octave does nothing.

plot([1 2],[1 2]);
print test1.png -dpng  #prints to file correctly

plot([1 2],[2 1]);
print test2.png -dpng  #nothing happens
