# Letters are missing with calligra

Whith \calligra, letters like \ and \u{g} disappear. How can I fix this?

See the demo below. Without calligra, it works. With, it doesn't.

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{report}
\usepackage[cam,width=4truein,height=6truein,letter,center] {crop}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[x11names]{xcolor}
\usepackage{calligra}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{anysize}
\usepackage{background}
\usepackage{graphics}
\marginsize{2cm}{2cm}{6.6cm}{1cm}

\thispagestyle{empty}

\backgroundsetup{scale=0.5,angle=0,opacity=0.6,position={16.5cm,-15.0cm},contents={\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{wedding-rings-2400px}}}

\begin{document}

\crop
\begin{center}

{\calligra \small K{\i}z \u{g}ını} \\
{\small K{\i}z \u{g}ını}\\

\end{center}

\end{document}

• if you do not need wedding-rings-2400px to show the issue please edit the example not to use files and packages that are not needed Feb 29, 2020 at 9:13
• The glyph inventory of calligra is not the whole of T1; it indeed lacks ı (dotless i) and ḡ (g with breve). The latter can be perhaps remedied to, the former can't. Feb 29, 2020 at 9:17
• @egreg can't ... unless you hit it with a sledgehammer. Feb 29, 2020 at 11:16

The font doesn't have the dotless i or g-breve but you can take the accent from another font and use a dotted i but hide the dot, or as Ulrike points out the font does have a (very stylized) breve accent so you can add \relax to stop LaTeX trying to use the composite letter :

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{report}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{calligra}
\usepackage{color}
\def\ci{i\rlap{\textcolor{white}{\kern2pt\rule{2pt}{7pt}}}}

\begin{document}

{\calligra  K\ci z \raisebox{-2pt}{\rmfamily\u{}}\kern-6pt g\ci n\ci}

{\calligra  K\ci z \u{\relax g}\ci n\ci}

{ K{\i}z \u{g}ını}

\end{document}

• I don't dare to test this at other fontsizes ... ;-) Feb 29, 2020 at 13:17
• @UlrikeFischer if you do, I'll build you a bigger sledgehammer Feb 29, 2020 at 13:22
• I would also need a tiny one. Feb 29, 2020 at 13:33
• @UlrikeFischer troublemakers are not invited to the wedding Feb 29, 2020 at 13:55
• There is a breve accent in the font, you could use it with \DeclareTextAccent{\mybreve}{T1}{8}. Do I get an invitation now??? Feb 29, 2020 at 13:58
