So as to automate/customize plot titles I use Row inside e.g. FrameLabel:
FrameLabel -> {"x", "y", Row[...]}

Now with Mathematica 9, the plot doesn't show the bit referring to Row. Does someone know how to fix this?

Can you confirm that the problem exists when using Graphics directly? I would like to add to or change the tags to include Graphics as I expect this is a more general and lower level problem than Plot. For example: Graphics[Circle[], Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"x", "y", Row[{"a", "b", "c"}, "+"]}] – Mr.Wizard Jan 9 '13 at 11:02
I checked and it works fine with Graphics. This issue seems to affect only Plot and related (e.g. ListContourPlot). – Valerio Jan 9 '13 at 11:15

It works for me on V9

  Plot[Sin[x], {x, -Pi, Pi}, Frame -> True, 
      FrameLabel -> {{"x", "y"}, {Row[{"this ", 1, "is ", 3, " test"}], 
                     Row[{"this is a title in row"}]}}]

Mathematica graphics

ofcourse it will help everyone if you posted an actual code example that shows the problem you are having.

In Mathematica 8 this was working: Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"x", "y", Row[{"a", "b", "c"}, "+"]}] After seeing your example I realized that now I have to rewrite the previous code as: Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {{"y", None}, {"x", Row[{"a", "b", "c"}, "+"]}}] – Valerio Jan 9 '13 at 11:20
funny though that Graphics still accepts the sloppy way FrameLabel -> {"x", "y", Row[{"a", "b", "c"}, "+"]} – Valerio Jan 9 '13 at 11:26
