I'm trying to use exactly the same fonts for other software as when using the lmodern package in latex.
All seems to work fine after having downloaded the latin modern fonts, as well as the latin modern math fonts from http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/lm-math/download/index_html respectively, with one exception: greek symbols in italic.
For some reason, the latin modern math fonts do not contain an italic font set for me. Reasons?
- Is this a problem with my OS (mac os X sierra)?
- Am I doing something wrong (basically just open the included .otf files and import them into the font book)?
- Any other reason?
Thanks in advance and best regards, Manuel
Edit: My question is very likely a stupid novice question: I assumed importing the .otf file of Latin Modern Math into the Apple Font Book, would somehow give me access to greek letters in italic (the same when typesetting a latex document with greek letters in math mode and using the lmodern package). I hoped that I could then access the greek italic font via for example simply choosing a font in microsoft word. For other fonts such as Euclid, different font types are included as shown in the two pictures attached, while for Latin Modern Math only a regular type seems to be included.
What am I doing wrong? Or am I asking the wrong question? Thanks again!
