I am using the Utopia font in my document, and it works perfectly well. As I want to put chemical formulas in sans-serif font, I was now looking for a suitable sans serif font to match the Utopia font.

I found that bera sans fits in an Utopia text very well. However, its letters are just a bit too small in size. It should be possible to change the font size of bera sans by using \usepackage[scaled=1.1]{berasans}. Unfortunately, this option does not seem to do anything in my document.

This MWE shows that the bera-sans font is just a bit too small, despite the scaled option:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[adobe-utopia]{mathdesign}
\usepackage[scaled=1.1]{berasans}

\begin{document}
This is a nice text \textsf{in sans serif}: S\textsf{S}, M\textsf{M}
\end{document}

    Cabin also matches well utopia, and has small caps in regular, boldface, italic and italic boldface. You should check if it requires scaling.

  • Thanks for the hint. It really looks quite nice. I'll consider using it instead. Option scaled=0.92 seems to be a good choice. Dec 29, 2015 at 13:41

Add the sfscaled=false option to mathdesign. The appropriate scaling in fact seems to be .90: If you are using a mono font as well in your document you may also want to add ttscaled=false also.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage[adobe-utopia,sfscaled=false]{mathdesign}
\usepackage[scaled=.90]{berasans}

\begin{document}
This is a nice text \textsf{in sans serif}: S\textsf{S}, M\textsf{M}
\end{document}
