I have figures and I am using the command below to save it as pdf. Is there any way to save it directly as pdf instead of saving as .ps and convert to .pdf.
print(figure(i), '-append', '-dpsc2', 'E:\myfigure.ps');
Thanks

saveas(gcf,'myfigure.pdf')
Or
set(gcf,'Units','inches');
screenposition = get(gcf,'Position');
set(gcf,...
'PaperPosition',[0 0 screenposition(3:4)],...
'PaperSize',[screenposition(3:4)]);
print -dpdf -painters epsFig
The first two lines measure the size of your figure (in inches). The next line configures the print paper size to fit the figure size. The last line uses the print command and exports a vector pdf document as the output.

Could you explain how you're using screenposition here?

May be this has already been answered somewhere else, but I thought I would share what I usually do for generating plots in pdf format. Run the following code after generating a figure:
clear figure_property;
figure_property.units = 'inches';
figure_property.format = 'pdf';
figure_property.Preview= 'none';
figure_property.Width= '8'; % Figure width on canvas
figure_property.Height= '11'; % Figure height on canvas
figure_property.Units= 'inches';
figure_property.Color= 'rgb';
figure_property.Background= 'w';
figure_property.FixedfontSize= '12';
figure_property.ScaledfontSize= 'auto';
figure_property.FontMode= 'scaled';
figure_property.FontSizeMin= '12';
figure_property.FixedLineWidth= '1';
figure_property.ScaledLineWidth= 'auto';
figure_property.LineMode= 'none';
figure_property.LineWidthMin= '0.1';
figure_property.FontName= 'Times New Roman';% Might want to change this to something that is available
figure_property.FontWeight= 'auto';
figure_property.FontAngle= 'auto';
figure_property.FontEncoding= 'latin1';
figure_property.PSLevel= '3';
figure_property.Renderer= 'painters';
figure_property.Resolution= '600';
figure_property.LineStyleMap= 'none';
figure_property.ApplyStyle= '0';
figure_property.Bounds= 'tight';
figure_property.LockAxes= 'off';
figure_property.LockAxesTicks= 'off';
figure_property.ShowUI= 'off';
figure_property.SeparateText= 'off';
chosen_figure=gcf;
set(chosen_figure,'PaperUnits','inches');
set(chosen_figure,'PaperPositionMode','auto');
set(chosen_figure,'PaperSize',[str2num(figure_property.Width) str2num(figure_property.Height)]); % Canvas Size
set(chosen_figure,'Units','inches');
hgexport(gcf,'filename.pdf',figure_property); %Set desired file name

Hi Firdaus,
Kindly change in the following line '12' to 'auto'...
figure_property.FontSizeMin= '12';

In R2021b and later you can use exportgraphics to directly create PDF files containing multiple figures:
% append each of the figures to output.pdf
for i=1:numFigs
exportgraphics(figure(i), 'output.pdf', 'Append', true);
end

saveas(gcf,'filename.pdf')
!pdfcrop filename.pdf filename.pdf'
pdfcrop is useful if you are saving pdf for latex and you are using Linux.
