Set Source Control Preferences

MathWorks® source control integration, accessible through Projects and the Current Folder browser, is on by default.

To disable source control, on the Home tab, in the Environment section, click Preferences. Select MATLAB > General > Source Control and click None.

When you disable source control, MATLAB® does not destroy repository information. For example, it does not remove the .svn folder. You can put the folder back under source control by enabling the source control integration again.
