I'm desperatly trying to get my greek san symbol (ϻ; minusculus; http://unicode.scarfboy.com/?s=U%2B03fb) into my pdf.


{\fontfamily{dejavu}\selectfont \greeksansym}

didn't work. There is just a blank character in my pdf. Is there a Font for latex that includes the ϻ symbol?

  • don't know of any latex-supported font that includes this. is it for text, or for use in math? – barbara beeton Nov 2 '17 at 16:59
  • If you can use xetex or luatex, fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/03fa/fontsupport.htm shows fonts you could use. – Thérèse Nov 2 '17 at 18:40
  • There seems ti be an error in this page: the code for this glyph is U+03FB. – Bernard Nov 2 '17 at 21:58
  • The glyph is in the DejaVuSerif.pfb but it is nowhere encoded. So one would have to generate tfm and other support files first before one can use it with pdflatex. – Ulrike Fischer Nov 4 '17 at 15:17

If you can use LuaLaTex you just need a proper font. For the following example, place the font DejaVuSansMono.ttf in the same folder as your .tex file and compile with lualatex.

\newfontfamily{\unicodefont}[Extension = .ttf,  Ligatures=TeX]{DejaVuSansMono}
