Firstly thanks to anyone who can help me with this problem.
I have a program for academic work that produces some figures. On these figures are measurements that I would like to be precisely the same as on the paper that I print it from. However after several attempts from online research (paper type, orientation, size) I cannot get the axis measurement to be true to when I measure it on paper (with a ruler) therefore affecting the size of my figure.
Is there a specific way to export to a printable file (as this PC does not have direct printing links) that I can print to typical A4 and the measurements will match up.
In terms of coding all I have is, the rest I tried to change in the sub-menus:
Thanks in advance.

Did you search for a solution in the File Exchange? export_fig is the "Most Popular" download.
I have an old m-function, A4Paper, which I use now and then. It produces a figure, the size of A4-paper, on screen. It allows me to position axes using centimeters and when printed on paper size and location on the printed paper agrees "exactly" with those given. E.g.
%% ohf = A4Paper( 'create', 'sa4' ); U = get( gcf, 'UserData' ); axes( 'pos', U.p2d.*[ 3, 3, 8, 8 ] )
and File menu, Print gives me a printout on which I can use a ruler. Both axes are 80 mm long as far as I can measured with my old plastic ruler.
However, I fail to print to a file. I tried to print to the Adobe PDF printer, and a couple of variants with the function, print. On paper they end up some 5% to small. The margins are increased and the printing area is decreased.
This makes me tired.
I've mailed A4Paper to you via [Contact Craig]. You might want to delete it together with other spam.
