I seem to have an issue in using many of text markings in my document (\textbf{} \emph{} \textit{} don't add any effect to text, but i.e. \sout works).

There's a few relevant compile warning messages, such as:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/cmr/m/n' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/lmr/m/n' instead on input line 926.

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/ppl/m/it' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/ppl/m/n' instead on input line 1.

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/ppl/m/sl' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/ppl/m/n' instead on input line 122.

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/ppl/bx/n' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/ppl/m/n' instead on input line 136.


Package scrextend Warning: This package was made to extend other classes but
(scrextend)                KOMA-Script classes by some features of the
(scrextend)                KOMA-Script classes.
(scrextend)                It should never be used with a KOMA-Script class.
(scrextend)                Loading of the package will be aborted.

Surprisingly, i also get multiple \bf usage warnings even though i don't directly (or at all as far as i'm aware) call the command:

Class scrbook Warning: Usage of deprecated font command `\bf'!
(scrbook)              You should note, that in 1994 font command `\bf' has
(scrbook)              been defined for compatiblitiy to Script 2.0 only.
(scrbook)              Now, after two decades of LaTeX2e and NFSS2, you
(scrbook)              shouldn't use such commands any longer and within
(scrbook)              KOMA-Script usage of `\bf' is definitely deprecated.
(scrbook)              See `fntguide.pdf' for more information about
(scrbook)              recommended font commands.
(scrbook)              Note also, that KOMA-Script will remove the definition
(scrbook)              of `\bf' anytime until release of about version 3.20.
(scrbook)              But for now, KOMA-Script will replace deprecated `\bf'
(scrbook)              by `\normalfont \bfseries ' on input line 10.

Similar reports (1, 2) specifying [T1] for fontenc package, but that did not help. lmodern package as suggested (1) also did not solve the issue.

Any suggestions?

    Questions seeking debugging help ("why isn't this code working?") must include the desired behavior, a specific problem or error and the shortest code necessary to reproduce it in the question itself. Questions without a clear problem statement are not useful to other readers. See minimal working example (MWE). Sep 12, 2018 at 11:03

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Without having your code it's hard to help. But you should do as the warning suggest: do not load scrextend (you are using a KOMA class). Furthermore, you seem to use XeTeX and load fontspec, so are you loading fonts the fontspec way?

  • Regarding using code snippet: my .tex header was quite big because of the many packages and commands, but i guess i still should have - my bad. @ TeXnician: i removed scrextend, i don't quite get what you mean by the "fontspec way". Anyway, switching mathpazo and fontspec helped. Sep 12, 2018 at 12:38

1 Answer 1


You seem to have, among many other packages (do you really need all of them?),




abc \textbf{abc} \textit{abc} \emph{abc}


which writes in the log file

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/ppl/m/n' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/lmr/m/n' instead on input line 7.

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/ppl/bx/n' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/ppl/m/n' instead on input line 9.

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/ppl/m/it' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/ppl/m/n' instead on input line 9.

and the consequence is using just upright medium Latin Modern Roman.

The order should be reversed, because otherwise mathpazo would choose text fonts not compatible with the EU1 encoding.



\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Pagella} % For a Palatino text font


abc \textbf{abc} \textit{abc} \emph{abc} $abc$
