# The unicode character U+2C7A (ⱺ)

I already asked how to embed fonts from Dejavu Sans Extralight in Lates documents. This is the link to my original question : DejaVu Sans Light with XeLaTeX?

None the less, the character U+2C7A (an O with a ring INside) is being displayed a blank square. I picked the letter via Kcharselect, so it exists. It is in the plane Latin -Extended C

Do I have a conflict with \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} , that is do I need a different encoding?

minimum working example, as suggested :

\documentclass[english]{article}

\usepackage{centernot}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{xunicode}
\usepackage{xltxtra}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{newtxtext}
\usepackage{newtxmath}

\newfontfamily\urw{URW Gothic L}
\DeclareTextFontCommand{\murw}{\urw}
\newfontfamily\dej{DejaVu Sans ExtraLight}
\DeclareTextFontCommand{\mdej}{\dej}

\include{./symbols}

\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}

math example :$\Dorbit$
normal : \dorbit

\end{document}


in symbols.tex

\newcommand{\Dorbit}{\mdej{ⱺ}}

• I think you shouldn't load fontenc with XeLaTeX. I get the glyph, if I add it to the MWE in my answer to your previous question. – egreg Aug 6 '13 at 19:54
• that did not help, should i also remove inputenc? – Sean Aug 6 '13 at 19:58
• Please, add a MWE. – egreg Aug 6 '13 at 20:18

You should use neither fontenc nor inputenc with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. Here is a working example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{newtxmath}
\usepackage{centernot}

\usepackage[no-math]{fontspec}

\newfontfamily\dej{DejaVu Sans ExtraLight}
\DeclareTextFontCommand{\mdej}{\dej}

\setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{TeX Gyre Termes} % use it instead of newtxtext

\newcommand{\Dorbit}{\mdej{ⱺ}}

\begin{document}

math example: $\Dorbit$

\end{document}


Note that \input should be used for loading a macro file, rather than \include. Don't load xunicode nor xltxtra (the last one can be loaded if you really need its extra features, which is quite improbable).

• i found out, that this gylph does not exist in dejavu sans extralight actually. so i am confused why my fontviewer was showing it, and how you actually got it. See here: fonts2u.com/dejavu-sans-extralight.font it does not have the latin extended C plane – Sean Aug 7 '13 at 12:31
• @Sean You should get the fonts straight from the source, dejavu-fonts.github.io because not all sites redistributing them have the latest version. This is generally true with fonts, not just with DejaVu. – Thérèse Nov 2 '17 at 18:50
• @Sean It seems that Kcharselect shows characters even if they are not in the selected font. I was bitten by this recently. The relevant bug is: bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97420. – Kenneth Hanson Apr 16 '18 at 4:39
