FIG file open in WinFIG

The FIG format was originally developed for Xfig, a Linux-based drawing program released in 1985. Many other developers have expanded upon Xfig's capabilities and released their own versions of the program, which are available for Windows and Mac PCs. Of these newer applications, only WinFIG still allows users to open, edit, and create FIG drawings.

How do I open a FIG file?

You can open FIG files in WinFIG, a cross-platform vector graphics editor application.

A FIG file contains a figure created by The MathWorks MATLAB, an application used for mathematical computations. It stores one or more plots or graphs, which are used to visualize data.

In MATLAB, a figure is the window that contains graphics output from mathematical data. The figure function creates a figure (window), which allows users to insert plots and graphs. You can open a FIG file using the openfig(filename) function and save a figure as a FIG file with the saveas(fig,filename) function. In the MATLAB application interface, you can save a FIG file by selecting File → Save or you can export it to an image, such as .JPG or .PNG, by selecting File → Export.
