Hi Jens-Peer, Sorry for my delay in replying. On May 17, 7:59 pm, Jens-Peer Kuska <k... at informatik.uni-leipzig.de> wrote: > > MakeBoxes[dddot[y_], fmt_: StandardForm] := > OverscriptBox[MakeBoxes[y, fmt], "\[TripleDot]"] 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, Will
