I am trying to set the title name (that varies depending on the plot) as the file name in a subfolder. I get the error code: Error using sprintf. Function is not defined for 'cell' inputs.
So there is some mistake with my syntax. I have tried different approaches but I don't get it to work. My code is as follows:
figure Timestep=(1:length(d_f_t(:,1)))'; plot(Timestep,W_per_K_serie, '*'); title(['Byggnad', subfolderNames(b)])
Does anybody have any advice? Thank you in advance

The title 'String' property may be a cell array, string array, or a char vector. You can easily convert this into a char vector:
tmp = char(get(get(gca,'title'),'string'));
saveas(figH, fullfile(folder_path, sprintf('%s.jpg',tmp)));
I would recommend that you avoid gca, gcf, etc., and always obtain and use explicit graphics handles for all graphics objects that you need to refer to.
