If movegui is called with no arguments then it will make sure the current figure is entirely visible on the screen. If that were already the case then nothing happens.

I made a few minor changes and pushed this changeset:


What is supposed to happen if movegui is called with no arguments?  Stepping through the function with the debugger shows it computing a position that is the same as the current position of the current figure so then doesn't appear to do anything.  Is that intentional?

I attach an attempt at implementing movegui:

It's not perfect as it doesn't take into account automatically the size of the figure decoration and the space used by the figure manager but I'm not sure there is a robust way to gather this information for all platforms.
