I'm currently using Math Time Pro2, but considering the \forall and \exists is not suitable for my liking. How can I change back to the origin LaTeX \forall and \exists symbol?

One more question, is that is there a more-straight (double) (left) right arrow? (I mean, in the "head" of the arrow) The \rightarrow-like symbol all have curly embellishment, which I don't want.

    By "origin[al] LaTeX", do you mean the Computer Modern versions of the symbols? (Computer Modern is available for PlainTeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and many other formats.)

    You might be interested in Importing a single symbol from a different font. However, you can also try to store the symbol before loading mtpro2 (\let\oldforall\forall \let\oldexists\exists \usepackage{mtpro2}, for example).

  • @Mico. Yes! How can I redefine these symbol(only these particular symbol!) to the original one in Computer Modern?

  • @Werner. Great idea! And after loading mtpro2, can I use the \oldforall to replace the \forall using in current session? I don't want to add three letters in every use.

    @Eric: After loading mtpro2, does \let\forall\oldforall \let\exists\oldexists restore the symbols?

You can load a math symbol font:


\let\mtproforall\forall % just for the comparison
\let\mtproexists\exists % just for the comparison



$\forall x\,\exists y$

$\mtproforall x\,\mtproexists y$


Look at the comparison and decide whether you really want the change.

  • Thanks! Appreciate! By the way, how can I find a table of the code of symbols? Such like knowing \forall is "38, whereas \exists is "39

  • @Eric The default settings are in fontmath.ltx in you TeX tree.

  • Thanks. I also want to find the code for \therefore, but I can't find it in fontmath.ltx, where's it?

  • @Eric That's in amssymb.sty, as far as I remember.
