L = 40*membrane(1,25); surf(L,'EdgeColor','interp') set(gca,'visible','off') daspect([1,1,0.9]) save2word('test.doc');I like Suresh's function because I can easily see it becoming a part of my workflow when I'm writing a paper in Word. Like the file that inspired it, SAVE2WORD does something that a lot of users might find useful, but that is not necessarily easy to write. (The file uses ActiveX objects to access and modify the specified Word document. Note that this implies that SAVE2WORD will only work on Windows machines. Anyone care to write a non-ActiveX version?) One thing I would have liked to see (enhancement request?) is support for writing multiple figures or models with a single call to SAVE2WORD. Of course, one could easily batch process open figures or models, but it would be nice if the function did that for us. I'll have more to say in future blogs about files that inspired, or were inspired by, other File Exchange submissions. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts on the most useful File Exchange file that cites inspiration from another submission.
