# KPfonts small caps italic

I don't seem to make kpfonts work with small caps italic text. This is my MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{kpfonts}

\newcommand*{\mytext}{Testing 1 2 3 testing!}

\begin{document}
\textsc{\itshape\mytext} % this doesn't work

\textit{\scshape\mytext} % this doesn't either
\end{document}


This is what I get:

Any ideas?

You need to use one of the following forms to get the slanted smallcaps font of the kpfonts package:

\textscsl{Testing 1 2 3 testing!}
{\scslshape Testing 1 2 3 testing!}


Addendum (Thanks, @egreg!): Alternatively, you could load the kpfonts package with the option easyscsl and then use the commands \textsc (or \scshape) and \textit (or \itshape) in a nested fashion:

\textsc{\textit{Testing 1 2 3 testing!}}
{\scshape\itshape Testing 1 2 3 testing!}


For more on this, see p. 5 of the package's user guide.

The easyscsl makes it possible to nest \textsl and \textsc (or conversely). I'm not sure about \textit. – egreg Nov 11 '13 at 15:03
@egreg - thanks for this suggestion. I've incorporated it in an addendum. – Mico Nov 11 '13 at 15:10
