Cannot set the tick mark direction as default

I recently switched to 2014b MATLAB, and I can no longer set the axes tick mark direction as default. That is, I used to be able to set the tick mark direction 'outward' by
set(0,'defaultAxesTickDir','out');
However, this command does not work any more. When I plot a new figure, the tick mark direction always becomes inward. I can still correct the direction by
set(gca,'TickDir','out');
each time I plot a figure, but this is very inconvenient. Does anybody knows how to work around this problem?

From our development staff:
set(groot, 'defaultAxesTickDir', 'out');
set(groot, 'defaultAxesTickDirMode', 'manual');
plot(1:10)
It is important that you set these two defaults in this order to be effective.

Thank you for providing the solution.

I would also like to remove the box around the plot, but the following command does not work:
set(groot,'defaultAxesBox','off')
I would appreciate if you could also show me how to turn off the box by default. Do I have to set another default property to reflect the change?

As I read the documentation, setting any property to something other than the default automatically sets the associated ‘Mode’ setting to 'manual'. When did that change? Can TMW change it back so it does?

Try
set( groot, 'defaultAxesTickDir', 'out' )
instead. Since graphics objects are now all actual objects rather than magic doubles the '0' handle no longer exists so groot is now the graphics root.

Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, using 'groot' does not solve the problem in MATLAB 2014b. For example, please try:
set( groot, 'defaultAxesTickDir', 'out' )
figure;plot(1:5,1:5)
MATLAB still plots tick marks inward.

That looks like a bug because if I do:
set( groot, 'defaultAxesTickDir', 'out' )
get( groot, 'defaultAxesTickDir' )
ans =
out
it clearly shows it has set the property, but it is not picking it up in the subsequent plot instruction.
set( groot, 'defaultFigurePosition', [400 400 200 200] )
for example does do exactly what you would expect.

Agreed. You can set it but it doesn’t do anything. It’s not listed in the groot properties. Another reason to not uninstall R2014a.

Thanks for checking out the problem. I guess we will have to set the axes property each time we plot a figure until the bug gets fixed...
