# Order of symbols in Graphics labels

Do you have any idea how to force an order of Greek letter in the graphics? When I type in

AxesLabel -> {Cost, Δ OverBar[π]}


the order is π Δ. How can I force it to be Δ π?

Simply put the label in a string, i.e. between quotes. You can still type any expression you like, including OverBar. From the docs:

OverBar[expr] can be entered using Ctrl+& and _.

Alternatively, wrap the expression in HoldForm or use Row:

AxesLabel -> {Cost, Row[{Δ , OverBar[π]}]}

Thanks! It worked well! – wlq Mar 3 '14 at 14:09
Just to exhaust the topic, worth to mention about StringForm and Grid. – Kuba Mar 3 '14 at 22:52
@Kuba Feel free to edit them in. It's community wiki, which signals that I'm okay with it, no need to ask. – Szabolcs Mar 3 '14 at 23:11
