I'm relatively new LaTeX user, and I want to use Monotype Garamond in LaTeX documents, at any cost. I know this is not the original version of Garamond, that the author is Jean Jannon from 1615 year, etc. For a long time I used Monotype Garamond in MS Word, and my faculty requires exclusively this font for my Ph.D. thesis, so please can anyone help me? I use TeX Live 2013 with WinEdt 8.0 on 64-bit machine.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX!. You can use XeLaTeX to enable use of the system's fonts. Also you can use the garamondx package with pdfLaTeX. – OSjerick Dec 19 '13 at 0:42

    It may be important here to know what exactly the requirement is and how they are going to check. For example, will they just look at the printed thesis? Or will they examine the pdf file properties to see which fonts are used? garamondx (install with the getnonfreefonts script) is an extension of URW GaramondNo8. The output for a basic sentence looks just like the output I get with a version of Monotype Garamond I installed for pdftex. So if they just check visually, garamondx may be "good enough". If they check the actual fonts used, maybe not. (Some places insist on PhD rules irrationally.) – cfr Dec 19 '13 at 1:10

    I see that it is for sale. After you purchase it then it's a pretty simple matter of using it with LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX. Once you acquire the font if you have any problems loading it then we can help you more with that. – bfootdav Dec 19 '13 at 5:02

    As a completion to the comment of cfr above: If you have to decline the use of garamondx, you can either use Monotype Garamond with Xelatex or LuaLatex "out of the box". Or you use pdflatex, but that requires the installation of much more than simply the *.otf or *.ttf files on your computer. pdflatex has at least one real advantage as long as you write your thesis: it compiles a lot faster. – Keks Dose Dec 19 '13 at 12:27
