  • What is wrong specifically with using the tex interpreter?:
    figure
    plot(rand(10,1),rand(10,1),'ko',rand(10,1),rand(10,1),'ro',rand(10,1),rand(10,1),'bo','MarkerSize',10);
    hold on
    daspect([1 1 1])
    ax = gca;
    l = legend('\color{black}\bf legend entry 1','\color{red} legend entry 2','\color{red} legend {\bfentry\rm} \color{blue}foo','Location','EastOutside');
    legend boxoff

    Here I have a legend entry with bold black text, red normal text and red text with only one word in bold that then changes to blue at the end.
    That seems to cover every combination you could possibly want.
    Hope this helps,
