I use the following preamble to get a sans serif font in my docs:


The siunitx package works well with this, producing all its output in the same sans serif font as the surrounding text.

But when I try to make the maths sans serif as well:


The maths outputs in sans serif, but anything from siunitx eg \num{2.3e-5} now outputs in the standard serif font!

Is there a way to get everything in sans serif font?

  • Can you please add your working code? because for me \usepackage[detect-all]{siunitx} doesn't work. – gvgramazio May 6 '18 at 14:36
