The mathpazo package has an slantedGreek option which allows for the use of slanted Greek capitals. However, I would like to use both the slanted and upright version of the Greek capitals. Is there a way to do so?

The package mathpazo defines \upGamma, \upDelta and so on to be “fixed” upright Greek letters (not sensible to the change of math group).




will print only the first \Gamma in bold face. With amsmath one has \varGamma, \varDelta and so on for the slanted Greek uppercase letters.

You can use the slantedGreek option for having \Gamma print a slanted letter and use \upGamma for the upright one. However, in this case, \mathbf{\Gamma} will still print an upright boldface Gamma.

If you need boldface slanted Greek uppercase, the bm package is needed, with \bm{\Gamma} (and the slantedGreek option, of course).
