I am copying subplots within a figure, to show the same data with an expaned time base.
As you can see from the example below, the copied subplots overlap somewhat, and the legends do not get copied. Is there a better way to do this?
t=(0:200)';
x=[cos(t),sin(t),cos(t/2),sin(t/2),cos(t/4),sin(t/4)];
fig1=figure(1);
ax1(1,1)=subplot(321);
plot(t,x(:,1),'-r',t,x(:,2),'-g');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XA'); title('A'); legend({'cos','sin'})
ax1(2,1)=subplot(323);
plot(t,x(:,3),'-b',t,x(:,4),'-c');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XB'); title('B'); legend({'cos','sin'})
ax1(3,1)=subplot(325);
plot(t,x(:,5),'-m',t,x(:,6),'-y');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XC'); title('C'); legend({'cos','sin'})
% Next: Copy column 1 plots to column 2, and adjust axes.
for i=1:3
axtemp=subplot(3,2,2*i);
ax1(i,2)=copyobj(ax1(i,1),fig1);
ax1(i,2).Position=axtemp.Position;
delete(axtemp)
xlim([0,20])
end
Thank you.

If I remove the horizontal axis labels ('Time') from the upper and middle plots on the left, the problem is less bad, but still, the copied plots are taller than the column 1 plots, which doesn't look good.

Hi William,
Use the subplot command as shown below to get the new axes aligned with the old. The legends need to be copyobj'd along with the axes.
t=(0:200)';
x=[cos(t),sin(t),cos(t/2),sin(t/2),cos(t/4),sin(t/4)];
fig1=figure(1);
ax1(1,1)=subplot(321);
plot(t,x(:,1),'-r',t,x(:,2),'-g');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XA'); title('A'); L(1,1) = legend({'cos','sin'});
ax1(2,1)=subplot(323);
plot(t,x(:,3),'-b',t,x(:,4),'-c');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XB'); title('B'); L(2,1) = legend({'cos','sin'});
ax1(3,1)=subplot(325);
plot(t,x(:,5),'-m',t,x(:,6),'-y');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XC'); title('C'); L(3,1) = legend({'cos','sin'});
% Next: Copy column 1 plots to column 2, and adjust axes.
for i=1:3
% axtemp=subplot(3,2,2*i);
htemp = copyobj([ax1(i,1) L(i)],fig1);
ax1(i,2) = htemp(1);
% Save handle to new legend if desired.
% Corrected based on W. Rose comment below.
% L(3,2) = htemp(2);
L(i,2) = htemp(2);
subplot(3,2,2*i,ax1(i,2))
% ax1(i,2).Position=axtemp.Position;
% delete(axtemp)
xlim([0,20])
end

You're right, it should've been L(i,2). It doesn't serve any purpose other than to provide a handle to the new legends should such legend handles be needed. I'll edit the post and fix code.
I was not aware of ax.Legend shown by @Voss, which avoids the need to create any legend handles.

So I can combine the @Voss and @Paul solutions. Forr some reason, on my system at least, Voss's solution makes column 2 plots that are sightly less tall than the corresponding column 1 plots. The combination of both approaches is below, and I appreciate it. Thank you both.
t=(0:200)';
x=[cos(t),sin(t),cos(t/2),sin(t/2),cos(t/4),sin(t/4)];
fig1=figure(1);
ax1(1,1)=subplot(321);
plot(t,x(:,1),'-r',t,x(:,2),'-g');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XA'); title('A'); legend({'cosA','sinA'});
ax1(2,1)=subplot(323);
plot(t,x(:,3),'-b',t,x(:,4),'-c');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XB'); title('B'); legend({'cosB','sinB'});
ax1(3,1)=subplot(325);
plot(t,x(:,5),'-m',t,x(:,6),'-y');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XC'); title('C'); legend({'cosC','sinC'});
% Next: Copy column 1 plots to column 2, and adjust axes.
for i=1:3 % Voss's & Paul's solution
htemp = copyobj([ax1(i,1) ax1(i,1).Legend],fig1);
ax1(i,2) = htemp(1);
subplot(3,2,2*i,ax1(i,2))
xlim([0,20])
end

To copy the legends, copy each with its associated axes (vector of objects to copyobj).
To fix the overlapping, set the OuterPosition the same, rather than the Position.
t=(0:200)';
x=[cos(t),sin(t),cos(t/2),sin(t/2),cos(t/4),sin(t/4)];
fig1=figure(1);
ax1(1,1)=subplot(321);
plot(t,x(:,1),'-r',t,x(:,2),'-g');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XA'); title('A'); legend({'cos','sin'})
ax1(2,1)=subplot(323);
plot(t,x(:,3),'-b',t,x(:,4),'-c');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XB'); title('B'); legend({'cos','sin'})
ax1(3,1)=subplot(325);
plot(t,x(:,5),'-m',t,x(:,6),'-y');
xlabel('Time'); ylabel('XC'); title('C'); legend({'cos','sin'})
% Next: Copy column 1 plots to column 2, and adjust axes.
for i=1:3
axtemp=subplot(3,2,2*i);
temp=copyobj([ax1(i,1) ax1(i,1).Legend],fig1);
ax1(i,2) = temp(1);
ax1(i,2).OuterPosition=axtemp.OuterPosition;
delete(axtemp)
xlim([0,20])
end

@Voss, Thank you. I'm sorry I can only accept 1 answer.
