# Use fonts in LaTeX from directory C:/Windows/Fonts [closed]

I'd like to use Palatino font in LaTeX, but there are no cyrillic symbols in the mathpazo package. But I can easily type cyrillic symbols with Palatino font in MS Word. So, is there any method for using Windows system fonts in LaTeX?

UPD I tried XeLaTeX and fontspec package, but it doesn't work with cyrillic symbols:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Palatino Linotype}

\begin{document}
Hello, world!
Привет, мир!
\end{document}


Should I add some commands for cyrillic symbols?

• If you use xelatex or lualatex then you can use system fonts (search for examples of the fontspec package on this site). – David Carlisle Mar 30 '13 at 12:58

• @DavidCarlisle, added MWE for XeLaTeX. – Alvar Mar 30 '13 at 13:23
• Are you sure that your file is saved as utf-8 rather than in an older cyrillic encoding. The error message would indicate it is not in utf8 (I can't tell as it is in utf8 by the time it is posted to the website but that isn't quite the same thing) – David Carlisle Mar 30 '13 at 13:40
• @DavidCarlisle, you are right, I checked and converted in another editor. Now it works, thanks a lot! – Alvar Mar 30 '13 at 13:44
