I am using Export_fig to export figs from matlab, I am getting very good plots generally. But when i add some textboxs and arrows in the fig. the clarity is pathetic.
I use the '-transparent' property, which does not work either.
export_fig('path', '-pdf','-transparent')
Anyone knows what is happening here. Normally this works very good, only when the text is added it acts like this way. Not sure if it's a glitch in the code or if i am doing anything wrong.
Note: I added the text and arrows with insert option on the menu bar.

In figure window, file-> Save as-> Check option for PDF. It will be better quality.
In case, if you are using Latex, then you can save in eps format.
Even, you can search for print option in Matlab.
Thanks !!
