Below is the code for an example plot,

Labeled[ListLinePlot[{Thread[{{0, 360, 720}, {0, 10, 
   20}}]}],{"\!\(\*FractionBox[\(\[CapitalPsi]\), \(R\)]\)", "\!\(\*FractionBox[\(\[CapitalPsi]\),\(R\)]\)"},{Bottom, Left},RotateLabel -> False] // TraditionalForm

I get the above image. Correct

Now if I export it to PDF/EPS using


I get below image, Wrong

In PDF export, the [CapitalPsi] is no longer in traditional form. Can someone help me with this?

Note: It work in PlotLegends but not in Labeled. Is this a bug?

plot = ListLinePlot[{Thread[{{0, 360, 720}, {0, 10, 20}}]}, 
        Frame -> True, RotateLabel -> False, 
        FrameLabel -> {{FractionBox["\[CapitalPsi]", "R"], ""},
        {FractionBox["\[CapitalPsi]", "R"], ""}}] // DisplayForm

fileNameSave = SystemDialogInput["FileSave", "testplot.pdf", 
                WindowTitle -> "Save plot ..."];
Export[fileNameSave, plot];
