I ask if at the code of Mico's answer to my earlier question, Looking for a Times Roman math font that closely matches selected glyphs,



\begin{tabular}{@{} >{\ttfamily}p{2.75cm} p{1.15cm} p{0.9cm} @{}}
txfonts % select from: mtpro2[lite], newtxmath[varwv], mathptmx, txfonts
& $\gamma$ $\beta $ $v$ $\Delta$ & $\gamma\beta v\Delta$

is possible (or exists) to add a similar calligraphic character that replaces Mathtime Pro 2 Curly script mtc enter image description here because I have only the lite subset of the mtpro2 package and I haven't the full version of the mtpro2 package. I would need two calligraphic font, one of the classic modern computers and the other must be similar to writing children.

    The mtc font requires the full version of mtpro2; the lite version doesn't provide it.

  • @egreg I have undestand after that mtc is it acronym for Mathtime Complete. Excuse me. But with \usepackage[lite] {mtpro2} I can have another similar calligraphic font that I can use also with times? Then I'll find on the internet somewhat similar font and gonna change it with Adobe Illustrator.

  • The option lite is incompatible with the options mtpscr and mtpccal. The latter two options only have an effect if you have the full version of the mtpro2 package -- in which case you shouldn't set the lite option.

    @Sebastiano I replaced the link you removed as the reference to Mico's answer makes no sense otherwise. But I am not sure why you keep editing this question in very minor ways. Insofar as I understand the question, it seems to have been answered by David and Mico. Insofar as I don't understand it, I think it really isn't clear what you want. As has been explained, you cannot use those options together. And you cannot use mtpscr and mtpccal unless you have purchased the fonts. The reference to Illustrator is also really unclear - what does that have to do with TeX?

Why those particular shapes?

As egreg mentioned in comments that's a commercial font, which is fine if that's what you want, there are no technical issues you just have to buy the font.

But there are plenty of script fonts around, You can easily have visually distinguished script fonts using fonts that are freely available and installed in TeXlive.

For example:

enter image description here



\DeclareMathAlphabet\stixcal{LS2}{stixcal}{m} {n}
