I'm using matlab on our HPC cluster under Linux. When I try to open the variables editor (either with openvar or doublecklicking the variable), a window opens that shows a string with the variable contents, but instead of the typical excel-like view it's just the textual representation of the variable, just the same as if you type the variable name in the prompt and press enter. There is no way to edit the variable.
How can I change to the usual editing mode?

Try restoring the default path.
If the issue is resolved, save the path. 'savepath' will overwrite the pathdef.m (>> which -all pathdef.m) Make sure to take back up of the file.

The viewer code might rely on a routine that you accidentally overloaded.
