swplot.export(Name,Value) exports an swplot figure into a raster/vector image. The function will remove the tooltip before exporting to raster image. For vector graphics, also the legend will be removed as it causes a bug in the Matlab print command. Also, vector graphics export does not support transparency, thus all transparency will be removed from the figure. Be careful, the vector image filesize can be quite large if there are many object on the figure. To reduce the file size, try reducing the and values to reduce the number of faces per object. The function uses the Matlab built-in print command after preparing the figure. All figure property restored after export.

Name-Value Pair Arguments
