In the past, I used MathType in WPS office for creating math documents. Now I'm using TexMaths in LibreOffice, which is a free alternative. In MathType, I have used fonts Gentium Book Basic and Thames to write math expressions. I would like keep this solution, is this possible?

    Welcome, at the time being, i don't see the relation to LaTeX yet. Can you specify? – Johannes_B Oct 12 '15 at 13:30

If you have the font files, you can use them with XeLaTeX, as it supports TrueType fonts too. Though I am not sure about visual quality, "native" TeX fonts tend to be much better.

It is worth to take a look though, for example I am quite pleased with Linux Libertine and Biolinum.

The import would be quite simple in XeLaTeX:

\setromanfont{Gentium Book Basic}

There are solutions for pure LaTeX, but I am not familiar with them.

  • Your answer is lacking essential information. First, you should mention, that the fontspec package is required for \setromanfont. Second, I guess that “Thames” is not a Unicode math font, which means that unicode-math is not viable and mathspec has to be used instead. You might also want to expand the undersized code snippet to a fully fledged MWE. – Henri Menke Oct 12 '15 at 21:22
  • I will add this info, as soon as I can – meskobalazs Oct 13 '15 at 7:32
