I have macros that use \mathrm. However, if the argument is a capital greek letter, newtx package changes the outcome to a math symbol in T1 encoding. I do not expect \mathrm to do anything on capital greeks but only pass through. Is there any way to get this result from newtx package?


    I want $\mathrm{\Gamma}$ to be same as $\Gamma$.

You need to make them mathord not mathalpha so they don't follow the current math alphabet:
