Currently using the lines
set(fig,'paperpositionmode','manual');
set(fig,'paperorientation','landscape');
set(fig,'paperunits','normalized');
set(fig,'paperposition',[0 0 1 1]);
print(fig,filename,'-dpdf','-fillpage');
to print a figure. Receiving error:
Error using checkArgsForHandleToPrint>LocalString2Handle (line 170)
Problem reading figure handle in -f switch: '-fillpage'.
Error in checkArgsForHandleToPrint (line 43)
Error in print>LocalCreatePrintJob (line 336)
handles = checkArgsForHandleToPrint(0, varargin{:});
Error in print (line 153)
[pj, inputargs] = LocalCreatePrintJob(varargin{:});
Error in dispPressures>savePlots (line 1088)
print(fig,filename,'-dpdf','-fillpage');
Error while evaluating UIControl Callback
I'm trying to print out a figure with two axes onto a PDF in landscape format and with the printout filling the entire page. I would prefer to use '-bestfit', but that gives me an illegal option error. Running 2015a.

The -fillpage and -resize options to print() are new as of R2016a.
