Hi Jens-Peer,

Sorry for my delay in replying.

Thanks for this!
I'm a bit confused regarding the TeXForm of this. How does this code
tell Mathematica to output "\dddot{y}" instead of "\text{dddot}(y)",
as it usually would?

Also (if I may ask), do you know if it's possible to adjust the way
that parentheses are output in TeXForm? For example, if I would like
"(a + b) c // TeXForm" to result in "[a+b]c" or, *even better*,
"\group{a+b}c" ?

Many thanks,
