# Is there an easy way to use only mathpazo's blackboard-bold facilities (without it using Palatino)?

The mathpazo package sets Palatino as the document's main font. However I am only interested in its blackboard bold symbols. Is there an easy way for me to only use Mathpazo's bb symbols?

Possibly the first answer here will help out. –  Scott H. Sep 8 '12 at 0:11

The following example adds the relevant code of package mathpazo for \mathbb:

\documentclass{article}

\AtBeginDocument{%
\let\mathbb\relax
\DeclareMathAlphabet\PazoBB{U}{fplmbb}{m}{n}%
\newcommand{\mathbb}{\PazoBB}%
}

\begin{document}
$\mathbb{ABC}$
\end{document}
