I am creating figures for a journal paper via MATLAB, and I copy these figures into Adobe Illustrator to do final tweaks. The real size of the figures for the journal are no more than 240 points by 240 points (1 pt being 1/72 of an inch). It's helpful to work in real units the whole time, so I set all my MATLAB figures to use units "points". However, this makes creating figures difficult as a plot of 120x120pts in size for example is incredibly small when rendered to the screen. I have included an example picture. Is there a way to change the scale of MATLAB's plot renderer so that say, 120pts corresponds to several hundred pixels? I would like to specify the length to pixel ratio.
