I really like the mathapazo package but it changes all the text - NOT only the math environment. How I can edit the \usepackage{mathpazo} so that it effect only the math environment?! Does anyone has an idea?

Or please suggest some other nice fonts that I can make use within \begin{equation} ... \end{equation} the default is too ugly! I also don't know how to change a font within \begin{equation} ... \end{equation} - so, please give an example not just a line of code.

    It makes little sense to use a Palatino based math font with a different text font.

    It is easy to change the text font after you have loaded mathpazo. But if you want to see code: provide a minimal example that we can adapt and tell what font you actually want to use as text font. Short question without sensible informations aren't appreciated. Commented Aug 25, 2014 at 15:47
  • I am loading mathpazo but it changes the font everywhere, and I would like to change only the math environment. Example, well, I also said that \begin{equation} ... \end{equation}.. say \begin{equation} A+B+C \end{equation}. How to change the font only at the \begin{equation} ... \end{equation} part.

    That is not a complete minimal working example (MWE) that people can compile to illustrate your problem. All questions should include a complete, small compilable example, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Also, you can edit your question. Code in comments is unreadable, does not help and is not appreciated either.

Just reset \rmdefault to the definition it had before mathpazo was loaded.
