Setting: Windows 7 64bit, MiKTeX, pdfLaTeX, specifically, I followed these instructions.

Having re-installed again and again, trying to make sure that I am not missing anything from the installation instructions, I still have the same problem: lining figures are shown as empty boxes.

MWE:

\documentclass[10pt,english,a5paper]{article}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{MnSymbol}
\usepackage{MinionPro}
\usepackage{fonttable}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}

\makeatother
\begin{document}
Normal Text: 0123456789

Math Mode: $0123456789$
\end{document}

outputs:

enter image description here

\usepackage[textlf]{MinionPro}

option outputs:

enter image description here

Curious, I tried:

\begin{document}
\fonttable{MinionPro-Regular-Base-aa}

\end{document}

The output: enter image description here

So, at least to my understanding, the lining figures are “there.”

What else should I try? What might I be doing wrong? I am frustrated because almost no one else have this problem, so I should be something wrong, and strangely, only the lining figures seem to be the problem.

  • For me it works fine (same system as you). Could you check the contents of the MinionPro.map? It should contains lines like MinionPro-Bold- **lf**` -l1-lgi--base MinionPro-Bold "AutoEnc_irupxkrjzh7fov4222hjskvybc ReEncodeFont" <[a_irupxk.enc <MinionPro-Bold.pfb`(I have 4721 lines like that).

  • @Bernard I have lines like: MinionPro-Bold--lcdfj MinionPro-BoldLCDFJ "" <MinionPro-BoldLCDFJ.pfb MinionPro-Bold-Base-aa MinionPro-Bold "MinionPro-Base-Encoding-aa ReEncodeFont" <[base-MinionPro-aa.enc <MinionPro-Bold.pfb

  • Could make a search in the file to see if the chain -lf- appears. In …\tex\latex\MinionPro, I have files like T1MinionPro-LF.fd parallel to T1MinionPro-OsF.fd, T1MinionPro-TLF.fd,T1MinionPro-TOsF.fd. Also, where exactly did you install the MinionPro package and fonts?

  • @Bernard no -lf- appears. I followed the instruction mentioned at the top of my post. (You can view the .PDF file)

Finally figured it out. The problem was that the guide I mentioned at the top of the post is wrong/outdated. The corrected version is here.

Specifically,

Wrong:

C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Local\MikTeX\2.8

Correct:

C:\Users\Phil\AppData\Roaming\MikTeX\2.8

Wrong:

C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\MikTeX\2.x\fonts\type1\Adobe\MinionPro\

Correct:

C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\MikTeX\2.x\fonts\type1\Adobe\MinionPro\

  • I added the files to both of these directories (\AppData\Local\ and \AppData\Roaming) and I still get these empty boxes. What else could it be? Mar 21 at 13:57

My problem with these empty boxes is even worse:

  \verb|\figureversion{lf,prop}|
    & \figureversion{lf,prop}0123456789 \\
  \verb|\figureversion{lf,tab}|
    & \figureversion{lf,tab}0123456789 \\
  \verb|\figureversion{osf,prop}|
    & \figureversion{osf,prop}0123456789 \\
  \verb|\figureversion{osf,tab}|
    & \figureversion{osf,tab}0123456789 \\
    
    Bold\\
    
  \verb|\figureversion{lf,prop}|
    & \figureversion{lf,prop}\textbf{0123456789} \\
  \verb|\figureversion{lf,tab}|
    & \figureversion{lf,tab}\textbf{0123456789} \\
  \verb|\figureversion{osf,prop}|
    & \figureversion{osf,prop}\textbf{0123456789} \\
  \verb|\figureversion{osf,tab}|
    & \figureversion{osf,tab}\textbf{0123456789} \\    
    
    Italic\\
    
 \verb|\figureversion{lf,prop}|
    & \figureversion{lf,prop}\textit{0123456789} \\
  \verb|\figureversion{lf,tab}|
    & \figureversion{lf,tab}\textit{0123456789} \\
  \verb|\figureversion{osf,prop}|
    & \figureversion{osf,prop}\textit{0123456789} \\
  \verb|\figureversion{osf,tab}|
    & \figureversion{osf,tab}\textit{0123456789} \\

Result: enter image description here

How can it show the tabulars and not the linings? And how can I have bold and italic versions, but not the regular one?
