I have recently downloaded the template for a CV from http://www.latextemplates.com/template/plasmati-graduate-cv. It is supposed to be compiled using XeLaTeX, with previous installation of the Fontin font which can be downloaded from http://www.exljbris.com/fontin.html.

In Linux everything works great, but under Windows it is a catastophe: all letters are written in small caps. The problem is in this line:

\setmainfont[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps]{Fontin} % Main document font

I have contacted the author of the template and he has suggested that I use Fontin Regular instead of Fontin SmallCaps:

\setmainfont[SmallCapsFont = Fontin Regular]{Fontin} % Main document font

But, if I do that I am unable to use \textsc at all. Does anyone have any suggestion?

Addendum: One other thing. I have noticed that within this enviroment I cannot use some accents, e.g.\v{c}, \'{c} etc. Is this normal?

  • Use \setmainfont[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps]{Fontin Regular} – Ulrike Fischer Oct 31 '13 at 9:56

    With regards to your addendum, characters with those accents may not be available in Fontin. – ChrisS Oct 31 '13 at 10:03

Use \setmainfont{Fontin Regular}[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps] (newer syntax), or
\setmainfont[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps]{Fontin Regular} (older syntax).

  • Before the discussion gets to heated: I will edit the answer and mention both syntax – Ulrike Fischer Feb 11 '15 at 21:20
  • @Manuel: you didn't corrected a typo or a faulty brace but made a change in the meaning, a switch from an older to a newer syntax. In such cases I prefer a comment to an edit. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 11 '15 at 21:34
