# Selecting an alternate style with fontspec

I've got a font with two styles showing up in fc-list, corresponding to two TTF files:

Humanistic:style=Regular
Humanistic:style=Cursive


How can I select the Cursive style in fontspec?

You can check font names with otfinfo -i <font-file>.

In that particular case you can use

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{fontspec,blindtext}
\setmainfont{Humanistic}
\newfontface\humanisticcursive{Humanistic Cursive}% Create a new font face for the Cursive style
\begin{document}
\blindtext
\humanisticcursive{\blindtext}% Apply the new font face
\end{document}

Ah! That was easier than I thought :-) –  ℝaphink Jun 29 '11 at 12:39
