Is there still a conflict between MnSymbol and amssymb & amsfonts, or have the problems between them been resolved?

Confer: Clash between amssymb and MnSymbol

    It is unlikely that this will change. amssymb and amsfonts are used in a production environment requiring stability. I don't know the background of 'MnSymbol`, but it was clearly intended for a use where the original Computer Modern fonts didn't provide the desired "look". The answers to the linked question offer good advice. Jun 20 at 17:54
  • @barbarabeeton I have a document where I use the three, and it crashes if I comment out one of them.

    if you make an example and show the error rmessage you get and state which fonts you want then someone could help. Goven they are defining the same commands with different font sthere is obviously no general solution but you can certainly define specific symbols from whichever font you want. Jun 20 at 18:10

    Steven's answer there is the resolution, what error did you get if you tried it? Jun 20 at 18:11

    @Sapiens presumably deleting the aux file cleared the pipeline but it's not related to fonts. Jun 20 at 21:41
