I've noticed the differences in typesetting between MTPro2 Lite and its complete version, so I even bought the license and installed the complete version onto my computer. Most of the features have been satisfactory except curly braces.

On my computer with complete MTPro2 font, curly braces look like this: enter image description here

But when submitted to journals, which I assume also use MTPro2, they somehow make it look much better. They look like this: enter image description here

For what it's worth, the following is how I configure mtpro2:

\usepackage[nofontinfo,zswash,straightbraces,subscriptcorrection]{mtpro2}

EDIT: And pdffonts on the journal PDF gives me:

The normal text seems to be lmodern whereas the math font is no doubt mtpro2 which gives Times Roman.

How do I make curly braces look like the journals'?

  • do you have the journal pdf? you can check which fonts it is using. the subscripts appear to be a lot bolder in your version as well? Mar 25, 2022 at 7:45
  • @DavidCarlisle I do have the journal PDF but that doesn’t show up until it’s officially typeset and published by the journal, TeX file of which I don’t have…

  • I don't understand:, I mean, how did you generate the 2nd image above? If you got it from a PDF then the pdffonts utility or viewer font menu should confirm what fonts it is using. Mar 25, 2022 at 12:44
  • @DavidCarlisle I screenshotted it from a PDF file I received from the journal. I didn't know pdffonts utility or viewer font menu would give me font info. I'll try that!

  • @DavidCarlisle I've added the pdffonts output. The journal PDF is downloaded here if that's useful. I thought this was more than just a font. I had assumed it had to do with configuring the mtpro2 package.

The text mode curly brackets are what I was looking for. Outside of math mode, \{ \} should normally work, but mtpro2 makes LaTeX complain if you do this in text mode. The remedy is to use \string{ \string} instead, which also works inside math mode.
