latex rendering weirdness

Hi,

why is $\sum M_\theta$ rendered correctly, but $M_\theta$" is printed as “_\theta$”?

Regards,

Hello,

could you please provide a stand-alone example of what is failing and what
version/ backend you are using?

for me the following works (with mpl-0.98.6svn and backend 'GTKAgg'):

text(0.25, 0.75, r"$M_\theta$")

regards Matthias

PS: You can access the used backend and the matplotlib version via:
print matplotlib.get_backend()
print matplotlib.__version__

Hi,

I just found the problem: I pass the legend labels via the command line. There, of course $M$ is interpreted as a shell variable. Escaping all $ and \ it works now.

Thanks,
