# LaTeX Arial Narrow font

I would like to use Arial Narrow font in LaTeX. But I cannot find the package used to do it.

You can use any font installed on your system with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX.

% Compile with xelatex or lualatex
% source file should be UTF-8 encoded
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setsansfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Arial Narrow}
\begin{document}
\sffamily Some Arial Narrow
\end{document}


You can select Nimbus Sans L Condensed (almost identical to Helvetica Condensed/Arial Narrow) like this:

\fontfamily{phv}\fontseries{mc}\selectfont

• Good point! Short question: Latex shows me that OT1/phv/c/n is undefined although I just installed texlive-fonts-extra. Any ideas what's the problem is here? Google didn't help and I know that this worked like a charm on a different computer. – phx Nov 6 '20 at 13:28
