Is it possible to use Lato font (http://www.latofonts.com/lato-free-fonts/) in Math mode? (or a similar font) I tried with


\setmainfont{Lato Light}

% \setmathfont[range=\mathup]  {Lato Light}
% \setmathfont[range=\mathbfup]{Lato Bold}
% \setmathfont[range=\mathbfit]{Lato Bold Italic}
\setmathfont[range=\mathit]  {Lato Light Italic}


some math

    \lim_{a\rightarrow \infty} f(a)\alpha = \sum_{i=0} g_{i} \sqrt{h_{i}}


but the summation symbol looks too small and the square root symbols are messed up.

I've also tried using pdflatex with the mathastext package but it doesn't work nicely with the Greek letters or the math symbols.

    unicode-math needs the main font to have a unicode MATH table which I don't think this does, you could try the mathspec interfaces instead, that is designed to use opentype text fonts in math – David Carlisle Jan 16 '17 at 22:33

    Not unless it has a MATH table. See my answer at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/152714/… for a detailed explanation. – cfr Jan 17 '17 at 3:07
