I currently have some issues with typing micrometer in symbols in the main text.

If I use \mu it is in italics, if I use \upmu the font changes and \textgreek also produces a different font.

Is there any way to set the font?

    Use \si{\um} from siunitx.

  • Thank you Steven, this was exactly what I was looking for! I did find your post earlier, but I couldn't get it to work. Now it does! Thanks so much!

  • So I've implemented \unslant box-way, but now I seem to have a problem with the fact that it is in a serif font, while my text is sans-serif. Any way to work around this?

You can use the package textcomp and the command \textmu to get a Micron Sign fitting to your current text font.
