Have you ever wanted to place a text on a figure (using TEXT), and end up spending time trying to figure out a nice location where it doesn't cover up the data? To be reusable for arbitrary data, you have to be clever in determining the X-Y location.
If only MATLAB could do this work for you...
Peter took on this challenge, and wrote textbp. With this, you can simply ask MATLAB to place the text at the "best" location. Now, that's clever.
plot(membrane(6)); textbp('This doesn''t cover up any data'); textbp('This one doesn''t either'); textbp('Niether does this'); textbp('Nor this');

This looks great. If it had a spell checker that would be even better (neither not niether).
Thanks for this!
Ha! Good catch. If it were a mistake in an equation, I would’ve noticed it. :)
it seems this function doesn’t support 3D graph, for instance, plot3d, surf.
