Thanks for your bug report. This is a known issue wiith fltk graphics toolkit (the default for 3.8 series). See bug #33180.

If you can confirm that it works with gnuplot, e.g.

graphics_toolkit gnuplot
close all
hf = figure ("visible", "off");
plot (1:10);
print foo.png

I'll close the bug report.

As opposed to MATLAB, in Octave there is no way for printing an invisible figure to a file.

plot([1,2], [1,2])
