I am currently having issues trying to use different fonts in my documents.

I read that if I want to use fonts directly installed in the Windows/Fonts directory I should compile the document using Xelatex.

Although I found some questions on this topic, like How can I get Latex to use the fonts that are already on my PC via Xetex? , I could not get it to work.

I would like to use a callygraphic font like this one: Anteiku. I can use it in Word without problems, but with Xelatex I get the message LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape EU1/Anteiku/m/n' undefined. It is not working even if I use the complete font name I find in the Windows/Fonts folder (in this case Anteiku Normale).

You can find here below a Minimal (Not) Working Example, showing the error message I get:


\setmainfont{Times New Roman}


{\myfont My text}

Thanks to everyone!

    The command is \newfontfamily\myfont{Anteiku}. Btw: EU1 indicates that your tex system is quite old. – Ulrike Fischer Dec 21 '19 at 22:42
  • @UlrikeFischer thanks for your help. I tried the command you indicated but now I get error messages like The font "Anteiku" cannot be found.. Do you think it is because my tex system is old? Could you give me some instructions on how to update it? – MarcoG Dec 22 '19 at 18:16
  • @UlrikeFischer I updated my tex system as you suggested, and now I am able to use Windows fonts without problems. If you want to write an answer, I'll mark it as accepted. Thanks again for your help! – MarcoG Jan 7 at 6:52
