How can I make sure that the fonts in my plot is the same?
I would like to have everything be in Heventica (or at least everything without math symbols be in Heventica), but once I use 'interpreter','latex', everything inside will become Times. Is there a way to either change the font of latex script, or have math symbols font be seperated from normal text?
This is what I have now
title('some title')
xlabel('$\int L_{data} - L_{sim}$','Interpreter','latex')
ylabel('Normalized counts')

Hi @Maggie liu, according to my understanding setting the default font to Helvetica does not influence the font used by the 'latex' interpreter. It isn't possible to specify Helvetica as the font for the LaTeX interpreter.
Since you mentioned that you would like to separate math symbols from text, you can use the following code for the same.
fontname = 'Helvetica ';
set(0,'defaultaxesfontname',fontname);
x = [2 4 7 2 4 5 2 5 1 4];
bar(x);
saveas(gcf,'Barchart','epsc')
label2 = '\int L_{data} - L_{sim}';
xlabel(label2);
ylabel('This is my y-label');
I hope it helps.
