I have added


to the preamble to get Mathematica input fonts. I can access them by using \mathversion{mono} and \mathversion{monobold}.

But wrisym has also changed the fonts for mathversion{normal} and \mathversion{bold} to Times. What can I do to make the normal and bold correspond to the default Computer Modern?

(p.s. The default main-body text font also changed to Times. So I also needed to get the default main-body text to be Computer Modern. With help from egreg, I achieved it by adding \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{cmr} to the preamble.)

I believe you don't want to load wrisym, but rather just to define new math versions:


This code in your document will define the math fonts to use under




without doing any change to the default text and math fonts.

  • This is very nice; and things are really shaping up. I still need to address two things (but I got one of them on my own; woot!). (1) By adding these definitions, the monospaced fonts became narrower than before. But after reading in the manual msymdoc.pdf, I noticed that I could fix this by changing tt to cr; e.g. change wttum to wcrum.. etc. (2) There are a handful special Mathematica characters (like double-struck letters and "Alias-Delimiter") which I need to access. Would you help me find how to get these characters?

  • @QuantumDot Look in wrisym.sty under "Delimiters" and "Double Struck". My impression is that you're asking for a whole new package.

  • Yep, that's what I'm doing now: and I found that I can get the necessary characters by adding e.g. \DeclareMathSymbol{\DoubleStruckG}{\mathord}{symbols}{number} \let\dsg=\DoubleStruckG to the preamble. Where I need to figure out what number I need.

  • @QuantumDot You get those only if the symbols font is one of the Mathematica fonts. It's far more complicated than just adding \DeclareMathSymbols.

  • Are you serious?? That's really depressing. I just need like 4 double-struck characters, and the alias delimiter... Ok, I'll spend another half-hour before giving up.
