I'm trying to label a plot as follows:

Plot[{Re[kai4] /. sol, Im[kai4] /. sol}, {z, 0, 2}, Frame -> True, 
 FrameStyle -> BlackFrame, PlotRange -> All, 
 PlotLabel -> "Numerical Solution" MaTeX@"\chi_4", 
 PlotStyle -> {{Black}, {Black, Dashed}},
 BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Latin Modern Roman"},
 FrameLabel -> MaTeX@{"x_3", "\chi_4"}, 
 PlotLegends -> Placed[MaTeX@{"Re", "Im"}, Below]]

and I have the problem that the MaTeX part of PlotLabel appears at the start. How do I fix this? I want it to appear in the order I typed it.

enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ try PlotLabel -> Row[{ "Numerical Solution", MaTeX@"\chi_4" }]? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes it worked. Thank you. Submit as answer and I will accept it. $\endgroup$ May 31, 2019 at 12:38
  • $\begingroup$ Or just MaTeX["\\text{Numerical Solution $\\chi_4$}"] $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You should know that the code you wrote is invalid (and only works because an accident and Mathematica's sloppiness about error reporting). "\chi" is not valid. You must write "\\chi" $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1



PlotLabel -> Row[{"Numerical Solution", MaTeX@"\\chi_4" }]

to prevent re-ordering of the two expressions in the label.
