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.

 \usepackage[cam,width=4truein,height=6truein,letter,center] {crop}





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

    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 (g with breve). The latter can be perhaps remedied to, the former can't.

  • @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 :

enter image description here




  {\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}

  • 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
