I want to use the TeX Gyre Pagella font for the main text. I have the problem to find match math and sans serif fonts to it.

  • I would like to use the TeX Gyre Pagella Math, but for this I have to use unicode-math because this font is only in otf format.
  • But then I can not use 'Bera Sans' because is only in adobe format.

Has any one some suggestion?

Have you tried mathastext? – Seamus Feb 11 '13 at 21:33
@Seamus: I did not look to that. I would prefer to use proper fonts. – TeXtnik Feb 12 '13 at 9:37

If you insist on Type 1 fonts (cf. Wikipedia: PostScript fonts), you could use the package mathpazo. Load this before loading of TeX Gyre Pagella, because mathpazo itself redefines also \rmdefault to a Palatino variant.

If you want to use OTF/TTF fonts – what usually means you must use Lua(La)TeX or Xe(La)TeX –, you could use “DejaVu Sans” as replacement for “Bera Sans” – the whole DejaVu fonts project is derived from the Vera fonts, from whome the Bera fonts themselves are derived (and BTW also the Arev fonts). For loading you do not need directly the fontspec call, but can write \usepackage{DejaVuSans}.

I like the option of DejaVuSans. It aslo can be used with lualatex via fontspec – TeXtnik Feb 12 '13 at 9:45
tex-gyre math covers pagella, too. only available in otf, though. – wasteofspace Feb 13 '13 at 0:06

Try pxfonts with \usepackage{tgpagella,qpxmath}.
