I can't remember how long ago MATLAB switched to the new default line color order. Overall, I much prefer the new colors. I'll never go back to the old [0,0,1] blue. However I'd like to be able to use the old shortcut and get the new blue.
Is there a way for me to redefine the blue produced by this code to be the new default line color?
What I'd most like is for MathWorks to define a new shortcuts '1'-'7' to produce the seven colors in the default sequence, but I would be somewhat satsified if I could hack things so that the old abbreviations give me the new colors.
I know I can do things like
plot(x,y,'color,',[0 0.447 0.741])
to get the new blue, and I have even written little one-line codes that will prevent me from having to memorize this value. However, I often write demos for my undergrads, The old way makes shorter easier codes, but produces graphs that use the bad-looking old color schemes.
