I want to use a special symbol from the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List called
\diamondtimes. Unfortunately, when I include the
MnSymbol package that provides this symbol, it also affects how other things look like. Since I need only this single symbol, is there any way to design it from scratch so that I don't have to include any extra packages?
Maybe it can be build by adding something on top of the standard
\diamond symbol? In fact, I want the diamond produced by
\diamondtimes to be the same size as
\diamond, since I plan to use both.
Update: Since it has such a simple shape, I would prefer to make it from scratch (or put something on top of
\diamond). Here is the original code from Sym-Geometric.mf:
beginoperator(med_op_size#, 1); "medium diamond times"; pickup rule_pen; r := w/2 - side_bearing; draw square(centre, r / sqrt(2), 45); draw (centre + sqrt .5 * r * dir 45) -- (centre + sqrt .5 * r * dir 225); draw (centre + sqrt .5 * r * dir 135) -- (centre + sqrt .5 * r * dir 315); endchar;
What language is this in and can I just reuse this somehow?
