# Changing fonts in \sin, \tan, \lim…

In LaTeX, when I type symbols as \tan or \inf in math mode, they use the normal text font, while I would want them to use Times font, without changing the main font of the text nor the math fonts, neither of which are Times. How can I do that?

• Welcome to Maths SX! You have chances it will be hideous. Do you have any reason for such a choice? May 21 '17 at 16:45
• ,@TorbjørnT. I totally misunderstood the question and removed my answer. As we repeatedly say, a MWE speeds up getting a precise answer! May 21 '17 at 17:54
• What does it means, that you do not want to change the math fonts? Do you want all operator names to be typeset in times?

\makeatletter

to your document preamble. Then look at the hideous output and remove the four lines. ;-)
