For Moodle illustrations I use the package noto. However, I would like the upper case Greek characters to be italic by default, as required by ISO 80000. Currently I can only do italics with the \mathit command.

Other packages I work with (newtx, minionpro) have corresponding options, but there is no information on this in the noto documentation. Basically, I want upper case Greek letters to behave the same as lower case Greek letters, being straigthened with \up.

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage[sfdefault]{notomath}

\begin{document}
$\alpha \upalpha \Phi \upPhi \mathit{\Phi}$
\end{document}

notomath is based on newtx.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[sfdefault,slantedGreek]{notomath}

\begin{document}

$\alpha \upalpha \Phi \upPhi \mathit{\Phi}$

\end{document}

  • Damn, I knew that notomath was based on newtx, but it never occurred to me that passing the same parameter would solve the problem :)

\up* is for an upright (straight) character, not an uppercase character.

For example, capital alpha is A; capital beta is B; while the capital form of σ (\sigma) is Σ (\Sigma). Thus, not every Greek letter has a unique uppercase form. For a detailed list, please refer to the table in the following link: https://www.overleaf.com/learn/latex/List_of_Greek_letters_and_math_symbols#Greek_letters.

For a consistent result, you may consider the textgreek package. In this case, \textalpha and \textAlpha will give you the desired result.

    I know. That was a lapsus linguae. My bad.
