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,


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

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Thanks, that looks like useful reading. – Praetoria Sep 5 '11 at 10:39

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

\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):

so to take a symbol from palatino, what code can we write? – mert Oct 23 '13 at 20:43
