MATLAB: Duplicating a GUIDE created GUI to a new name and new folder


Hello, I have a matlab GUI created in guide (so have myProgram1.m and myProgram1.fig) in a certain directory.
I would like to copy this to a new name (i.e. myProgram2.m and myProgram2.fig) and place in a new directory and have no link to the previous one.
What is the suggested way to do this

  • The suggested way is to open myProgram1 in GUIDE, and tell GUIDE to Save As to the new location.
    Do not just copy and rename: the .m and .fig for myProgram1 contain references to myProgram1 . You could edit the source myProgram2 to change the references there, but that would not change the .fig file.
