How do I make the attached symbol in LaTeX so that I can use it in normal sentences? FollowingImage

    What do you mean by normal sentences? In TeX you simply type in math mode $K^C_{F_n}$ or some variant, depending if you want upright shape. – Sigur Feb 5 '18 at 14:18

The question is a bit ambiguous, but here goes.

\newcommand\KFC{K\scalerel*{\setstackgap{S}{2pt}\Shortstack[l]{C \vphantom{F}%
Finger lickin' good \KFC.

enter image description here

  • And I feared that you would post something with stackengine already... phew.... wait, it is stackengine .... ;-) – user31729 Feb 5 '18 at 14:33

    stackengine is like the US Marines: it can be your best friend...or your worst nightmare! – Steven B. Segletes Feb 5 '18 at 14:36

    I think there are much more other packages that should be titled worst nightmare rather than stackengine .... – user31729 Feb 5 '18 at 14:38

You can always make command for a specific operation like $K^C_{F_n}$ by using \newcommand{\command}{operation}, for example:


    symbol \kcfn

Output: symbol $K^C_{F_n}$

You can change the name of the command as you like and also put different specifications as you need like bold or italic, font size etc.

  • You're using super/subscripts, that's not really putting the C and F_{n} aside of the letter K, but I agree that the question is unclear – user31729 Feb 5 '18 at 14:34
