I am trying to get a sans math version of the lmodern family using \DeclareMathVersion but my approach does not work and I do not see why. But I have to admit that I am not sure whether I use the correct fonts:

% Math letters from Latin Modern Sans
% Math operators
% Math symbols
% Large symbols
$a b c \alpha \beta$

$a b c \alpha \beta$

In both cases the result is the normal serif math font.

There is no Latin Modern Sans in OML encoding and LaTeX tells you:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `OML/lmsso/m/it' undefined
(Font)              using `OML/cmm/m/it' instead on input line 18.

You can try Computer Modern Bright instead:

  • @MatthiasPospiech That's true.

    I think this answer might be updated by mentioning sansmathfonts now.
