I have .fig files I cannot open, it says 'error using open (line 146) dot indexing is not supported for variables of this type. Any idea how I can access these files? It is a weeks worth of work.

Have you tried this?
fig1=openfig(figure_filename); %Only figure file name, ensure that figure in current directory

Typing in the command line, in the figures diectory: fig1=openfig('Fig4C12March19'); (previously I was double clicking directly on the file) you get a better look at the error code but it does not mean much to me:
Dot indexing is not supported for variables of this type.
Error in matlab.graphics.internal.figfile.FigFile/read (line 59)
result = hgDataVars.(vars_hgM{1}).GraphicsObjects.Format3Data;
Error in matlab.graphics.internal.figfile.FigFile
Error in loadFigure (line 31)
FF = matlab.graphics.internal.figfile.FigFile(fullpath);
Error in openfig>localOpenFigure (line 69)
h = loadFigure(filename, visibleAction);
Error in openfig (line 40)
figOut = localOpenFigure(filename, reuse, visibleAction);

I get exactly the same error message, but I cannot figure out what it means or what I can do about it.
I have produced several figures with my code and can open all but one; also, I have run this code several times with different parameters, but don't always get this error message for the same figure. The error message thus seems quite random to me.
Does anyone have any idea what I could try to open this figure? Or do I really have to re-run the whole simulation?
