# How to get ϱ and ɔ working with MinionPro [closed]

Using LuaLaTeX and MinionPro (the one from Adobe Reader), I apparently cannot print the characters ϱ and ɔ ("symbolic rho" and "open o"). This I find a bit strange in a professional font. Can that really be true?

If you want a MWE so badly, here it is:

\documentclass{memoir}

\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmainfont[Ligatures={Common}]{Minion Pro}

\begin{document}
Hellɔ woϱld.
\end{document}


I know I can do something like

\usepackage{newunicodechar}
\newunicodechar{ɔ}{\rotatebox[origin=c]{180}{c}}
\newunicodechar{ϱ}{ρ}


but is that really the way to do it? I especially don't like the first one. And the second one changes from one version of rho to another, which I would have liked to avoid.

• Thanks for the MWE (yeah, we always need it... Would be even better with article class and no font options). I do not have this font. Please try \symbol{"03F1}\symbol{"0254}. If there is nothing appearing, I would say, those symbols are not in Minion Pro. – LaRiFaRi Jan 23 '15 at 8:30
• Neither of the is a 'common' symbol (the rho here isn't the usual lower case Greek letter): it would not surprise me at all if they are lacking. A definitive check can be made using a font editor if you have access to the font files (I don't). – Joseph Wright Jan 23 '15 at 8:33
• On the type tester of this page: typekit.com/fonts/minion-pro it looks like they are existing. What did you mean by "from Adobe Reader"? Did you buy the font package or do you use something shipped with Adobe Reader. Could be a minor bundle. If you are on Windows, install NexusFont and have a look on the files you have. – LaRiFaRi Jan 23 '15 at 8:42
• I have the paid version, and these characters do not exist in this font (checked with Nexus Font). – Bernard Jan 23 '15 at 9:45
