# Oldstyle numerals by default with Lucida Bright T1

I bought the Lucida fonts from TUG. Is it possible to use the T1 version and have old style figures in text by default (that is, without the need of selecting them with \oldstylenums each time?

% arara: pdflatex
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lucidabr}
\usepackage{textcomp}               % necessary for \oldstylenums to work
\DeclareEncodingSubset{TS1}{hlh}{1} % necessary for \oldstylenums to work
\begin{document}
1234567890                % these are lining
\oldstylenums{1234567890} % these are osf
\end{document}


For example, in the code above textcomp and \DeclareEncodingSubset{TS1}{hlh}{1} are necessary for \oldstylenums to work, as lucidabr's documentation indicates. But I would like to have oldstyle numerals by default throughout the text, instead of having to select them on an individual basis as in the snippet above.

• Can you please add a minimal document to show how you load the Lucida Bright fonts? Jun 30, 2020 at 9:39

The lucidabr package has no option for choosing oldstyle numbers by default, but you can do it manually.
