# z label scatter plot

I've a problem in plotting a 3D scatter plot. I can't understand why the z label is distorced

can you help me?

scatter3(x(:,1),x(:,2),x(:,3),50,index_color,'filled') xlabel('1$^{st}$ component','Interpreter','LaTex','FontSize',14); ylabel('2$^{nd}$ component','Interpreter','LaTex','FontSize',14); zlabel('3$^{rd}$ component','Interpreter','LaTex','FontSize',14);

I'm using ubuntu and matlab R2012b

I have had spotty luck with the LaTeX interpreter (in Windows). Try the TeX interpreter instead:

xlabel('1^{st} component','Interpreter','tex','FontSize',14); ylabel('2^{nd} component','Interpreter','tex','FontSize',14); zlabel('3^{rd} component','Interpreter','tex','FontSize',14);
