I tried to use grid() and setgridcell() to create subplots and control their positions, but setgridcell() function doesn't seem to work as it states.
For example, given the following code:
a = rand(100,1)
The two subplots are created at (0,0) and (0,1), instead of (1,0) and (2,1).
I also tried calling autoadvancegrid(False) but this does not disable auto advancing cells as it states.
