Redefine \qedsymbol: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsthm} \usepackage{amssymb} \renewcommand\qedsymbol{$\blacksquare$} \begin{document} \begin{proof} A test text \end{proof} \end{document} I wouldn't recommend to switch off right alignment for the end-mark (it's not standard, so readers might miss the end-mark and quite franckly, it looks ...

Perhaps \RectangleBold or \Rectangle from the bbding package? Or make your own symbol using a \rule (no packages required): \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsthm} \usepackage{bbding} \newcommand\MyRectangle{\rule{.36em}{2ex}} \renewcommand\qedsymbol{\RectangleBold} \begin{document} \begin{proof} A test text. \end{proof} ...

There are also blocks of different thicknesses in the Zapf Dingbats supported by pifont. Unlike bbding, these will be scalable even with a default TeX Live installation (which does not include the type1 versions of bbding for licensing reasons). \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsthm,pifont} \begin{document} \ding{120} \ding{121} \ding{122} ...

Simple option with fontawesome which provide icon \faPlayCircle \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontawesome} \usepackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor} \begin{document} \colorbox{black}{{\color{ForestGreen}\faPlayCircle}\ {\color{white}\sf Run}} \end{document} Which gives

As Latin Modern seems to be your preferred font family, the definition of \mypound used in the example below may be what you're looking for. \documentclass[oneside,11pt]{memoir} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage{graphicx} % for \scalebox and \raisebox macros \newcommand\mypound{\scalebox{0.8}{\raisebox{0.4ex}{\#}}} ...

I found a trick that will do a decent job without having to install packages or anything. Just write in math mode $A-\!\! \rightarrow B$ The minus sign after the A is followed by two negative spaces in LaTeX and this will give the impression of a broken or dashed arrow. I was working on a poster and was loading several conflicting packages which made the ...

Here is a minor adjustment to the placement and size of \#: \usepackage{adjustbox} \let\oldhash\#% \DeclareRobustCommand{\#}{\adjustbox{valign=B,totalheight=.57\baselineskip}{\oldhash}}% adjustbox's valign=B ensures that the bottom of the box lies on the baseline, while totalheight=.57\baselineskip ensures it is about the size of a capital letter in the ...

You can build your icon using TikZ: The code: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{tikz} \definecolor{playgreen}{RGB}{58,193,62} \newcommand\PlayButton{% \begin{tikzpicture} \node[draw=black,fill=black,thick,minimum width=3.7em,minimum height=3.2ex] (bframe) {}; \node[minimum ...

Something like The symbols are obtained through these definitions (need graphicx package): \newcommand{\bigsqsubset}{\mathrel{\text{\scalebox{1.5}{$\sqsubset$}}}} \newcommand{\bigsqsupset}{\mathrel{\text{\scalebox{1.5}{$\sqsupset$}}}} MWE: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath,amssymb} \usepackage{graphicx} ...

I'm not sure what's the meaning of this, but you can try with relsize: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amssymb,relsize} \newcommand{\fancybrackets}[1]{% \mathopen{\mathlarger{\mathlarger{\sqsubset}}}% #1% \mathclose{\mathlarger{\mathlarger{\sqsupset}}}% } \begin{document} $\fancybrackets{G_{n}}$ \end{document}

In order to get a not yet existing symbol as a character in LaTex from a logo or comparable, please follow these steps: Disclaimer: This is not a scientific approach nor one founded in Software Engineering. You can file it as a life hack if you so will. System used (YMMV): Windows 7.1 x64 XeLatex MikTex 2.9 fontspec package Step 1 Create an .svg file ...

I assume you're not interested in the operator-status of \bigwedge then. That is, you just want to use it as a symbol. For that, resize it to suit your needs: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{adjustbox} % http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/256556/5764 \newcommand{\BigWedge}{\mathord{\adjustbox{valign=B,totalheight=.6\baselineskip}{$\bigwedge$}}} ...

Thanks to Christian Hupfer I found this new list: http://tug.ctan.org/info/symbols/comprehensive/symbols-letter.pdf And found the solution I wanted \ding{55} from table 251
