# URW Grotesk for XeLaTeX/LuaLaTeX (fontspec)?

How can I use URW Grotesk font with XeLaTeX/LuaLaTeX (fontspec) ?

Or if this is not possible/easy, are there a good heavy font replacement for it (if possible that works as well with PDFLaTeX) ?

Here is a MWE compiled with PDFLaTeX:

\documentclass[border=7pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{lmodern}

\begin{document}
Normal font\\
\fontfamily{ugq}\selectfont URW Grotesk font
\end{document}


• I don't have the grotesk version, but \setmainfont{URWBookmanL-DemiBold} works for me, just for example

• I don't understand the question, because your MWE will compile just fine with xelatex too. Jun 4, 2015 at 16:32

I've installed URWGrotest.ttf in my local directory -- using xelatex works out of the box for this.

(Source of the font: http://font-db.com/font/URWGroteskT/57578, it's a .zip file, where the font file is called font.ttf, so I renamed it)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\usepackage{blindtext}
\setmainfont{URWGrotesk.ttf}
\begin{document}
\blindtext
\end{document}


• Thanks ! Small precision, to make my MWE example works I have to download the bold version and rename it from font.ttf to URWGrotesk-bold.ttf.

• @Kpym: Alright -- I just used the first one I've found ;-)
