Using fonts with TeX was once a Jedi fight, before XeTeX and LuaTeX development. Nowadays, using fonts is simple.

Using fonts

You will find here the preliminary steps before actually playing with the fonts in your input file. At the end, with one or two commands, you will make your document enable to use any fonts available on your computer.



The actual use of fonts within your document is detailed in Font Switching:

  • how to define font size,
  • how to use alternative styles like regular / bold / italic / small caps
  • how to switch between serif, sans serif, monospaced, or to another fonts with \switchtobodyfont
  • how to underline, strike...

Advanced stuff

The Manuals

Deep dive into typescripts

  • the source browser for s-fonts- files, that a user can run (to get an example) or use as module for own fonts
  • Lua Font Goodies with examples.


Finally, for older content, refering to mkii, we keep a specific zone in the wiki. Work is also need to merge content of Fonts_in_LuaTeX here.
