I'm looking for a way to insert this symbol ∟ (html: ∟) in my document. I found some posts in the internet referring to \usepackage{mathdesign} and \rightangle, but this seems to be this char: > has anybody an idea? thank you very much!

A solution with picture mode:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pict2e}

\DeclareRobustCommand{\rightangle}{%
  \begingroup\setlength{\unitlength}{1ex}%
  \begin{picture}(1.2,1)
  \roundcap
  \polyline(0.1,1)(0.1,0)(1.1,0)
  \end{picture}%
  \endgroup
}

\begin{document}

Here is the right angle symbol \rightangle{} in context.

\Large

And \rightangle{} changes size

\end{document}

enter image description here

A solution with the STIX fonts. This variant can be used in math mode and automatically changes size in subscripts or superscripts.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\DeclareFontEncoding{LS1}{}{}
\DeclareFontSubstitution{LS1}{stix}{m}{n}

\DeclareRobustCommand{\rightangle}{%
  \text{\usefont{LS1}{stix}{m}{n}\symbol{"D9}}%
}

\begin{document}

Here is the right angle symbol \rightangle{} in context.

\Large

And \rightangle{} changes size

\end{document}

enter image description here

Have you tried \usepackage{graphicx}

\rotatebox[origin=c]{180}{$\neg$}

The vertical piece is a bit smaller but it might work.

  • thanks, this a great advice. It will do for now. I was looking yesterday for a package to use the character, but was not able to find a way to do so.. – systemlos Jan 29 '17 at 11:07
