When I try to draw a Feynman diagram with superscripts, if I use newtxmath, the superscripts on the particles (like \mu^{-}) won't show. Here's the mwe:



    photon/.style={decorate, decoration={snake}, draw=black},
    electron/.style={draw=black, postaction={decorate},
        decoration={markings,mark=at position .55 with {\arrow[draw=black]{>}}}},
    gluon/.style={decorate, draw=magenta,
        decoration={coil,amplitude=4pt, segment length=5pt}} 


        % Set the overall layout of the tree
        level/.style={level distance=1.5cm},
        level 2/.style={sibling distance=2.6cm},
        level 3/.style={sibling distance=2cm}
             child[grow=right, level distance=0pt] {
        child  {
            child {
                child {
                    node {$\overline{\nu}_e$}
                    edge from parent [electron]
                child {
                    node {$e^{-}$}
                    edge from parent [electron]
                edge from parent [photon]
            child {
                node {$\nu_\mu$}
                edge from parent [electron]
            edge from parent [electron]
            node [below] {$\mu^{-}$}


This one will make the diagram, but without superscripts :\ If I leave the newtxmath out, I'll have the superscripts on the diagram, but also the 'math text' is, well, not in tx font :| Any solution to this?

  • I get the superscripts with the very same code.

  • Even with the \usepackage{newtxmath}? :\ Weird, because in my code when I enable it, I don't have them, when I disable it, I get superscripts :\ For the exact same code... i.imgur.com/aqQ5xRG.png

Oh, the upgrade solved my issue, I totally forgot to say it... Sorry :\
