Is there a way to use kpfonts but with the standard mathfrak? At first I thought it was nice to have a more readable font, but now I feel like the original one was actually better!

If you refer to Euler Fraktur as the "standard mathfrak", it should be as easy as loading the eufrak package after the kpfonts package and undefining \mathfrak inbetween.


Edit: Corrected solution.

yeah, unfortunately it gives an error: Latex Error: /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/tex/latex/amsfonts/eufrak.sty:41 LaTeX Error: Command \mathfrak already defined. – slackenerny Mar 18 '11 at 16:37
Sorry, it should work now. – Michael Ummels Mar 18 '11 at 16:39
brilliant, I wonder if there's a way to switch between one font and the other – slackenerny Mar 18 '11 at 16:41
Yes, it is possible. You can define a new command to access the fraktur letters in kpfonts like this, I think (after loading kpfonts): \DeclareSymbolFontAlphabet{\kpfrak}{lettersA}. – Michael Ummels Mar 18 '11 at 16:46
Thanks, I'll try it out. – slackenerny Mar 18 '11 at 17:01
