I was happily using the kpfonts package for my thesis, then I wanted to switch to xelatex for some reasons and I realized I didn't know how to use Kepler fonts with xelatex. The kpfonts package, when used with xelatex, silently fails, apart from the usual missing fonts substitution warnings.

%!TeX program = xelatex
\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{kpfonts}

\begin{document}

Hello World

\end{document}

Note that I use the kpfonts package specifically for its light variant, so using another Palatino-like font won't work for me unless there is a way to get a similar light version.

Any way to get it work with xelatex?

  • You're missing the most important piece of information: why do you need XeLaTeX? And no, KPfonts are by no means a variant of Palatino. – egreg Aug 9 '18 at 9:27
  • It's to be able to use Helvetica Neue as a sans serif font for titles. But I don't think that's really relevant to the question. – gigabytes Aug 9 '18 at 9:30

  • when compiled with xelatex as well? – gigabytes Aug 9 '18 at 9:25
  • Your question was "Using kepler fonts with XeLaTeX?" ... ;-) – user2478 Aug 9 '18 at 9:30
  • Yes, thank you. It seems to work, but the link posted on a comment seems to imply that kpfonts is incompatible with xelatex, so am I going to face some problem? – gigabytes Aug 9 '18 at 9:32
  • It is not an unicode font, some special characters are not available. – user2478 Aug 9 '18 at 9:35
