I wish to use the font tgpagella without it being used throughout the entire document. How do I import this font into my document without causing it to be used by default?


If you look into tgpagella.sty, you find there (after some complex code setting the scaling which you probably do not need) the line \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{qpl}. This means that tgpagella font is encoded by fontname scheme as qpl. Then the solution is to call this family directly:

This is typeset in default font.  {\fontfamily{qpl}\selectfont This
  is typeset in tgpagella.}  And default font again.

    You might add how one is supposed to find the correct string. – egreg Mar 10 '12 at 18:29
  • What do you mean by "the correct string"? – Josh Mar 10 '12 at 18:33
  • I think @egreg meant qpl – Boris Mar 10 '12 at 18:34
