I recently installed the latest MacTex (2017) on my laptop, then mathpazo stopped working -- it is not showing the correct font. I copy-paste the exact same file onto Overleaf, the font is showing just fine. Does any one know whether there is a conflict between new MacTex distribution and mathpazo? Thanks!

  • Make a minimal example and show it along with its log-file. – Ulrike Fischer Aug 1 '17 at 11:12
  • How do you know it's the wrong font? – Herb Schulz Aug 1 '17 at 13:52
  • Also, what OS version are you using? – Herb Schulz Aug 1 '17 at 13:58
  • thank you all. I finally located the problem. It turns out mathpazo is not compatible with pstricks in the new MacTex 2017 -- if deactivate pstricks then mathepazo works again. – Logica Aug 2 '17 at 9:20

In my particular case, I finally located the problem (by deactivating other packages in use one by one while keeping \usepackage[sc, osf]{mathpazo} active). It turns out mathpazo is incompatible with \usepackage{pstricks,pst-tree,pstricks-add} in MacTex 2017.

    Sorry, but this is not an answer. I tried a minimal example with \usepackage[sc,osf]{mathpazo} and \usepackage{pstricks,pst-tree,pstricks-add}, with no problem whatsoever. – egreg Aug 2 '17 at 9:31
  • Do you use MacTex 2017? In any case, as I said, this was a fix to my particular case. In fact, I tested the exact same tex file with both \usepackage{pstricks,pst-tree,pstricks-add} and \usepackage[sc,osf]{mathpazo} active on Overleaf, and it worked just fine. It just doesn't work on my local laptop -- it finally worked once I deactivated \usepackage{pstricks,pst-tree,pstricks-add} – Logica Aug 2 '17 at 9:53
  • Of course I use MacTeX 2017, otherwise I'd not comment. Is adding a minimal example too difficult? – egreg Aug 2 '17 at 10:18
