I am using the errorbar function to plot some data, and I wish to create a legend and have access to the icons object it uses. When I use the legend function and do not call the icons object as an output, the legend plots corrently (see below).
figure
errorbar(1:5,5:-1:1,0.5:0.1:0.9,'k.','MarkerSize',100,'LineWidth',4,'CapSize',15)
legend({'Data'},'FontSize',20)
However, when I do specify outputs of the legend function, the legend does not create an icon similar to the first example.
figure
errorbar(1:5,5:-1:1,0.5:0.1:0.9,'k.','MarkerSize',100,'LineWidth',4,'CapSize',15)
[lgd, icons, plots, txt] = legend({'Data'},'FontSize',20);
How can I call the legend objects whilst keeping the icon the correct size and shape?
This question here had a similar problem, but no answer was given. This is in MATLAB version 2018a.

This appears to be a bug.
I work at MathWorks and have forwarded this feedback to the relevant team.

You will never be able to do this. When you ask for the second output of legend you invoke a backwards compatibility mode that creates legends a different way. Because the people who use this need legends to work the same way as before HG2 in R2014b, the mode has to be bug-for-bug compatible.
You will need to modify the objects that you get in the second output.
