This code creates a figure to be exported/saved:
[X,Y,Z] = peaks(25);
hf = figure;
surf(X,Y,Z);
view(2)
cb = colorbar
set(get(cb,'title'),'string','MyTitle','fontsize',16)
On screen you should see this figure:
When the figure is saved using the command print, the title of the colorbar is missing. In fact, the following code
print(hf,'-dpng','-r300','MyFigure');
creates the figure 'MyFigure.png' that looks like:
The problem is experienced on:
  • Matlab2015b
  • Mac OSX 10.9.5
Any ideas, suggestions or solutions are welcome.

EDIT
The same code on a machine with Windows 10 works.
Maybe it is a bug only for Mac OS X systems.

Hi,
I tried the above code and it displayed the title for me. You could maybe try switching to a basic version of hardware-accelerated OpenGL or update your drivers

Hi Shruti Sapre, thanks for the try. By the way, I tried to switch to basic version of hardware-accelerated OpenGL and it does not solve.
It seems to me that this is a bug for operating system OS X. Because O tested the code on a Win10 machine with Matlab2015b and the code works. (I'm going to edit the question with this information).
On which operating system did you try the code?
