- either use the
fontspecpackage and compile the document with either
- or convert the
ttffont to Type 1 and make it available to TeX (which requires considerable work).
Although the first option seems preferable, the resulting document compiled with
lualatex becomes unusable for scientific purposes, as explained elsewhere. That means that if one wants to change the font, the second option is for now the only available for scientists.
At the same time, as mentioned in the same the answer, the process of converting a
ttf font to a Type 1 one is rather tedious. It would then be nice to have a package or a web page with not all, but at least some other fonts already converted to Type 1 and readily usable in TeX.
My question is finally whether such package/webpage exists created by those who succeeded in conversion (
I understand that there may exist copyright issues for some fonts (which would hamper the creation of such a package for them), but it should not be the case for all the fonts.
