Importing a Single Symbol From a Different Font

I would like to use a single symbol from the fourier family in mathmode in one of my formulae in my document. In the comprehensive symbol archive,

ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive/symbols-a4.pdf

on page 53, the \partial symbol in table 147 is what I am after. How can I manage this?

I can't remember where I got this from, but here's what I have in my custom .sty file:

\DeclareFontEncoding{FML}{}{}%
\DeclareFontSubstitution{FML}{futm}{m}{it}%
\DeclareSymbolFont{fourier}{FML}{futm}{m}{it}%
\DeclareMathSymbol{\partialup}{\mathord}{fourier}{130} % Upright partial derivative symbol

I think that's the one you're looking for.

Works like a charm - now I just have to parse it. :-) Thanks for your help. –  Praetoria Sep 5 '11 at 10:38

Minute differences, but the symbol \partial in table 147 is actually the italic non-variant version (kahen's solution is the roman \varpartial symbol):

\DeclareFontEncoding{FML}{}{}
\DeclareFontSubstitution{FML}{futm}{m}{it}
\DeclareSymbolFont{fourieritalic}{FML}{futmi}{m}{it}
\DeclareMathSymbol{\fpartial}{\mathord}{fourieritalic}{64}

so to take a symbol from palatino, what code can we write? –  mert Oct 23 '13 at 20:43
    
@mert \usepackage{mathpazo}? Perhaps this question might help you Importing a Single Symbol From a Different Font. –  mforbes Oct 24 '13 at 3:59
