Created attachment 866 plot figure with the legend bug Hi, I put the bug report in test component because I had to select something but it's actually a bug induce by the FieldTrip to the basic legend function of Matlab. When I add FieldTrip to my path and execute the following simple code y = sin(0.01:0.01:10); x = sin(0.01:0.01:10).^2; plot(x) hold on; plot(y) legend('toto', 'boum') I got the following result (see attachment). The plot is normal without FieldTrip in my path and I cannot see any legend or plot function in FieldTrip, so I have no idea what's happening. Thanks for your help.

thanks for reporting. I cannot reproduce it. What makes you think it is due to fieldtrip? Did you follow instructions at I suspect that if you type "which legend" or if you type "path", it will disclose that you set up your path incorrectly.

Hi, You're right, I didn't see the fieldtrip path instructions. When I add only fieldtrip to my path there is no bug. The legend bug is only happening when I add fieldtrip with all subdirectories (could be due to external stuff ?). Anyway thanks for you're help ! Renaud

I have tried making this even more clear (i.e. pushing it in the users face upon every FieldTrip function call). Please check out
