'subsindex' error when setting figure position. What is going on?

2 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to resize a figure as shown
H = figure;
set(H,'Position',[200 200 800 200])
I get the error
Function 'subsindex' is not defined for values of class 'matlab.ui.Figure'.
What is going on and how can I fix this?

You accidentally created a variable named set so MATLAB thinks that set() expression is an attempt to index the variable.

Worked for me: I had managed to create a variable named 'axes' which was giving me problems with
sub_axis_h(3) = subplot(2,2,3);
axes(sub_axis_h(1)); hold on; grid on; xlabel('x'); ylabel('y');
