This question already has an answer here:

Can you please post the specific code for using \diamondplus and \diamonddot from MnSymbol without loading this package?

The answer to the question Importing single symbol from MnSymbol gives a general procedure. To implement this procedure for a specific symbol different from the symbol used there requires understanding of fntguide document. For those who do not understand fntguide, help asked here is essential. Also, more specific examples can help others gain better understanding of the general method.

I don't known whether or not this makes sense, but you may copy the relevant code from MnSymbol.sty (and minimize it somehow), e.g.:

\documentclass{article}

\DeclareFontFamily{U}{MnSymbolC}{}
\DeclareSymbolFont{MnSyC}{U}{MnSymbolC}{m}{n}
\DeclareMathSymbol{\diamondplus}{\mathbin}{MnSyC}{"7C}
\DeclareMathSymbol{\diamonddot}{\mathbin}{MnSyC}{"7E}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{MnSymbolC}{m}{n}{
    <-6>  MnSymbolC5
   <6-7>  MnSymbolC6
   <7-8>  MnSymbolC7
   <8-9>  MnSymbolC8
   <9-10> MnSymbolC9
  <10-12> MnSymbolC10
  <12->   MnSymbolC12}{}

\begin{document}
$\diamondplus \diamonddot$
\end{document}

diamondplus and diamonddot

  • Thank you very much! This is exactly what I need and it works perfectly. – wdacda Jan 10 '17 at 9:55
