A TypeScript (as opposed to a font) contains font definitions for the individual font styles (regular, sans, math, etc. and bold, italic, bolditalic, etc.).

I can list all the fonts with mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=*. But since \setupbodyfont[my-typescript] takes a TypeScript and not a font, I would like to know the installed TypeScripts.


Default TypeScripts can be found in the type-imp-* files in the directory tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/ (relative to the ConTeXt installation directory).

If you installed TeX on a Mac with TexLive 2013, you can list them as such:

ls /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-imp-*

and used in \setupbodyfont[my-typescript] without the type-imp- prefix.

Furthermore there are TypeScripts which ship as third party modules. These can be found in tex/context/third/typescripts/.

    For me, they are in texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/context/fonts/mkiv/. – SzieberthAdam Jun 17 '17 at 7:03
