# Copy/paste of Interpretation to Latex fails, but works for InputText

As part of another issue, the following has come up. Create an Interpretaion:

Interpretation[Subscript[a, b], a[b]]


Select and copy the $a_b$ output from the notebook. If you paste it into a text file, you get: a[b], which is correct as the Inputform, and what we want.

However, if you select it and choose Copy as Latex, you get: \text{$\$$CellContext\grave{ }a}(\text{\$$CellContext$\grave{ }$b}) in a text file. I would like to be able to copy this and get the latex as$a_b$, or$a[b]\$ as a worst case. Are there any tricks that could help here? (I don't think this has anything to do with subscripts)

I have a way around it which works under Linux and Mathematica 9.0.1 and uses ToString like this
• @jlperla Yes, you have to do that because ToString makes already the LaTeX transformation. – halirutan Aug 23 '13 at 9:23
