Hi, here is my code for the legend:

legend ((handlevector([1 4 7 10 11])), {'\it{t_2} = 0.1', ...

But I only want the "t_2" bit in italics and the "= 0.1" bit in normal font.
Can anyone help?
Thanks!

What you've done works fine for me in Matlab R2006a.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have R2009b and it makes the whole thing in italics...

Typographically, the correct thing is to set only the 't' in italics:

  '{\itt}_2 = 0.1'

You could also use the latex interpreter, but you have to set that
property after the legend is created (at least in R2009a you do):

  h = legend ((handlevector([1 4 7 10 11])), {'$t_2 = 0.1$', ...
  set(h,'Interpreter','latex')

...

'\itt\rm_2 = 0.1'

should do that, then.

At least in my early release (R12), the parens are passed thru to appear
as text in the legend rather than stripped to surround the formatting
string...

Those aren't parentheses, they're curly braces and they are the proper
way to limit the scope of a command, \it in this case.
