# Using only greek fonts from a certain fonts package

I am fairly new to LaTex, and I want to use a different font family for greeks (and leave all the other letters unaffected such as ordinary alphabets).

In particular, I want to use GFS Bodoni package's greek fonts, but I want to keep everything else in Computer Modern.

Can this be accomplished?

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Apr 6 '15 at 17:49

The package substitutefont is what you need.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[polutonikogreek,english]{babel}
\usepackage{substitutefont}
\substitutefont{LGR}{\rmdefault}{bodoni}

\begin{document}
This is English

\textgreek{Πάτερ ἡμῶν ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς·}

\end{document}


The only difficult bit, after having realized that substitutefont is the needed package, is finding the font family name. Then a simple

texdoc gfsbodoni.sty


from the terminal, reveals the lines

\DeclareOption{default}{%
\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{bodoni}}


so we found what we were looking for.

The most useful Greek font families for this purpose are artemisia, bodoni, udidot, gfsbaskerville.
