Hi all,
I am aware that using something like:
xlabel('X-label, \$x_{label,LaTeX}\$ (W)','Interpreter','latex')
can help to write in LaTeX, however, I was wondering if there's any way I can use LaTeX for only and write the remaining part of the label in the default font of the MATLAB label - I've seen that the LaTeX interpreter doesn't allow changing font?

Hi Minas,
To have part of xlabel in regular MATLAB figure font and remaining in LaTeX font, you can specify font for specific parts inside LaTeX markup as follows:
xlabel('\$\textsf{X-Label} \: x_{label,LaTeX} \textsf{(W)}\$','Interpreter','latex')
Hope this helps!
