This is a very basic question, and as my code suggests, it should work, but it's not: I want have the variables in these legend keys have subscripts, but when MATLAB displays the graph, they appear as written with the underscore symbol.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Thanks for letting us know the answer. It's good to know there is a workaround.

I'm beginning to think you should submit a bug report. However, maybe you'll get more consistent results with
Or, for better style,

I know this is old, but since it's the first thing that appeared when I searched about it, here's for future references until they fix it. The bug is still here: in bodeplot/bodemag the LaTex interpreter breaks if 'complex' expressions with subscripts and superscripts are provided in the legend arguments.
%% Attempt with Tex, explicitly set for ease of reading
legend('W_{p1}^{-1}', 'W_{p2}^{-1}', 'W_{p3}^{-1}', 'Interpreter', 'tex')
%% First attempt with LaTex
legend('$W_{p1}^{-1}$', '$W_{p2}^{-1}$', '$W_{p3}^{-1}$', 'Interpreter', 'latex')
%% Second attempt with LaTex, following
% <>
l = legend('$W_{p1}^{-1}$', '$W_{p2}^{-1}$', '$W_{p3}^{-1}$', 'Interpreter', 'latex')
set(l, 'string',{'$W_{p1}^{-1}$', '$W_{p2}^{-1}$', '$W_{p3}^{-1}$'})
%It seems that there's no need for line 35, since the assignment to l
%actually solves the problem and shows the correct legend
%But then if the legend contains something more "complex" than only
%subscripts and superscripts, it breaks again
l = legend('1+ $W_{p1}^{-1}$', '$1/W_{p2}^{-1}$', '$1-W_{p3}$', 'Interpreter', 'latex')
Here's what the Techical Support told me:
"This appears to me like a bug, since the same syntax that you used when creating the legend in a standard plot with 3 lines works as expected, while when using bodeplot or bodemag a formatting issue is encountered. I will inform our development team right away so that they can consider to fix this for a future release."

In MATLAB R2016a, the fix seems to be adding a "\_" instead of a "_"
e.g. h = legend('$G\_{\mathrm{a}}$', '$G\_{\mathrm{b}}$'); set(h, 'Interpreter', 'latex');

This one worked in 2018b too. The other fixes didn't.

TRY this
clear all
hold on
plot (a,c)
xlabel('angle in degrees')
ylabel('value of funtion')
title('sin and cos curve')
legend('sin curve','cos curve')
hold off

Also, backslash is a special character that sometimes modifies what comes after it, so it's not surprising you get unexpected behavior if you don't know that.

Nope, not working. The legend still reads "e_out..." and so forth.

Here's what I'm faced with now: It will properly do the subscripts, but at any random run of the script. I just did it now, and it worked. Ran the same thing two seconds later...back to not working.
