I am the developer of SciType for Canada Type. SciType offers an opportunity to get simple math and science properly typeset in text and presentation software (Word, Nisus, Keynote...). It works via the OpenType GSUB tables, and replaces e.g. space x space by space multiply spaceand2^2bytwo two.supsand\abyalpha`. The last example shows that SciType will not ...

Leave the hard work to textgreek. If you need the letter to work also in math mode, add a suitable definition with \newunicodechar. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{textgreek} % use these if you also want π to work in math mode \usepackage{newunicodechar} \newunicodechar{π}{\ifmmode\pi\else\textpi\fi} \begin{document} This ...

I don't have the “Palatino Linotype” font, so I use a substitute, which requires the definition of \greekfont (one gets a suitable warning, in case this is necessary). \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[a4paper,top=2cm,bottom=1cm,left=3cm,right=3cm]{geometry} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage{polyglossia} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Palatino} ...

If you load either (i) the polyglossia package and setting polytonic greek to be the main language or (ii) the babel package with the "polutonikogreek" option, XeTeX will find a hyphenation point for the word παῖδας and thereby avoid creating an overfull line on the very first line of your MWE. (Aside: Until about a year ago, polyglossia was the preferred ...

Here is a comparison of different math fonts: The problem with the Palatino-like fonts (Asana and TG Pagella) is that only one of the x lines is thicker. The r looks bold even compared to the t. The Times-like fonts (TG Termes and XITS) have a thicker appearance, so if font switching is an option for you, you may want to try one of them. If you want to ...

Just confine the font change in the environment. Note that Gentium doesn't provide small caps. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \newfontfamily\Gentium[Ligatures=TeX]{Gentium} \begin{document} This is in the normal font \begin{center} \Gentium\huge This is in the Gentium font \end{center} and back in the normal font. \end{document}

I’m a novice at OT feature programming myself, so probably my tips aren’t all that helpful, but since you never got any answer… Maybe it doesn’t help to combine the lookups, but it makes the code more readable at least: lookup AU_TO_OO { sub a by o; sub u by o; } AU_TO_OO; feature test { sub t' e by s; sub a' lookup AU_TO_OO u' lookup AU_TO_OO; } ...

The warning seems to reflect an issue that has been reported on the fontspec development page but no action or comments have been made. It's only a warning and not an error, and should only affect you if you wish to use the Persian names for fontspec features, and in particular the Renderer (تحویل دهنده.) feature. I would just ignore it.

I suggest to use the MinionPro package. It works under XeLaTeX and pdfLaTeX. It is part of the Font Pro package available from https://github.com/sebschub/FontPro. Follow the instructions there to install it. The following MWE \documentclass{article} \usepackage{MinionPro} \begin{document} This is the standard Minion Pro Font\ldots My issue is with ...

So far the only workaround I found is to use fake bold for bold italics \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage[math-style=ISO,bold-style=ISO]{unicode-math} \setmathfont{[Asana-Math]} \setmathfont[range=\mathbfit,FakeBold=2.0]{[Asana-Math]} \renewcommand{\vec}[1]{\mathbf{#1}} \begin{document} \Psi(\vec{x}, t) ...

André Miede, the author of classicthesis - which uses Minion Pro, recommends the Euler Math font to use with the latter one: "[...] loads the awesome Euler fonts for math." [emphesis mine] (from the classicthesis documentation, page 6)

A (probably) general LaTeX solution: \newcommand{\BGMfont}{% \fontencoding{EncodingOfYourFont}% \fontfamily{NameOfYourFont}% \fontsize{22}{25}% % about \huge \selectfont} {\BGMfont My Words Here} Without an illustration of the result, of course, because it is an answer for the first version of your question, when the name of the font was not ...
