Description
A tool to set the margins, papersize, align labels, etc...
   Usage:   setplot(fig, figsize, {top, bottom, rows, left, right, cols}, fontsize, fontname)  
            to use defaults on current figure, run without arguments                

   Inputs:  fig = figure handle   
            figsize = [figwidth figheight] in cm  
                          *1       *2  (see figure below)  
            margins = {top, bottom, rows, left, right, cols} in cm  
                       *m1  *m2     *m3   *m4   *m5    *m6  (see figure below)
                       note: leave margin empty [] to use optimal values
                             e.g. {[],[],[],1.5} only sets left margin to 1.5 cm    
            fontsize = size of the font                
            fontname = type of fontfile:

           |<-------------- *1 ------------------------->|  
          
   Outputs: none   

Especially useful in combination with the figure saving tool (saver.m)
