Using lmodern package and \scshape in beamer:


\frame{\scshape Normal size text}


LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `OT1/lmss/m/sc' in size <10.95> not available
(Font)              Font shape `OT1/lmr/m/sc' tried instead on input line 5.

What is the recommended way to deal with this warning? Silencing it would be ok.

  • it's telling you that you don't have sans serif small caps, what is recommended depends mostly on what you want. leave as is, pick a different font that has sans caps and small caps, change the document not to select that, ... – David Carlisle May 11 '15 at 18:41
  • I don't have the option to change the font shape, it is generated by a package. Tried to silence it but it didn't work. It's annoying to have many warnings of this sort. – Desik May 11 '15 at 19:00
  • If your goal is to silence the warnings, try \usepackage{silence} \WarningsOff*. – Sverre May 11 '15 at 19:39
  • Yes, silencing this way works. How could I silence just this sort of warnings? – Desik May 11 '15 at 19:52
  • You do have the option to change the font shape. If you delete \scshape then it will not try to use that font shape. – cfr May 11 '15 at 20:40

I managed to filter the warnings, with either

\WarningFilter{latexfont}{Font shape}

or, if silence package have to be loaded in safe mode:
