## Can't get vector arrow symbol to show up on plots

 Hello there, I cannot get the vector arrow symbol (among other things) to appear in the labels of my plots. For example: x = 1:10; y = x.^2; plot(x,y) title('\vec{x}') All that shows up in the title is "vecx", not an x with arrow over it. I also cannot get bold fonts to appear. If I try: title('\Sigma') I get an uppercase Greek sigma letter. But, if I try: title('\bf\Sigma') Instead I get "/Verdana-bold ", where  is the correctly-printed uppercase Greek sigma letter symbol. I have tried: "set(0,'defaulttextinterpreter','latex'", as well as 'tex' and 'none' I have also tried: "set(gca,'interpreter','latex')", as well as 'tex' and 'none. What gives? Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? :[ Thanks, -Brad Ridder

What Octave version, what OS, how did you install it, what plotting backend are you using? (If you don't know, it's probably gnuplot). _______________________________________________ Help-octave mailing list [hidden email] https://mailman.cae.wisc.edu/listinfo/help-octave
