Is this a known bug? >TeXForm[a + b] >TeXForm[a/b] >TeXForm[a - b] >a-b Whether the inconsistency between the output obtained above with TeXForm and the output obtained when TraditionalForm is used in the same manner should be considered a bug or not, I'll leave to others. It does seem to me a more convenient way to getting a series of TeXForm outputs would be: In[2]:= TeXForm /@ {a - b, a/b, a + b} Out[2]= {a-b,\frac{a}{b},a+b} which clearly does what it should. I see this as more convenient since it takes several fewer keystrokes to get the desired output.
