I'm trying to use Linux Libertine/Biolinum in combination with the menukeys package. Unfortunately, switching between the default font (everything scaled properly) and Libertine causes the predefined keys to shrink unproportionally compared to the text size. Any clues what's happening here?

Libertine and menukeys


% toggle on / off
\setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Biolinum O}

    Works fine for me. Do you have the newest versions of the fonts? Some older fonts had wrong ex values. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 29 '13 at 15:35
  • Also works fine for me. If you have an up to date TeX install you could try to use the libertine package (it loads the OpenType fonts for you and provides a recent version of Libertine/Biolinum). – Silke Jan 29 '13 at 15:43
  • Indeed, i had to update the libertine package. Now it works flawlessly. – bioslime Jan 29 '13 at 16:13
  • Voting to close, because questions answered by you have to update are too localized by definition, I think. That’s not saying that this is a bad question, however! – doncherry Jan 29 '13 at 16:57

with current TeXLive or MiKTeX you do not need an additional package:

    But what would you do if you like to change the border color, or replace the + by something else? ;-) – Tobi Jan 29 '13 at 15:53
  • Thanks for the alternative but i like the formatting capabilities of the menukey package as well as its add. features (listing a menu / path sequence). Mh, not sure if i'm doing it right but i'm going to accept this answer to mark the question answered. But the primary solution to my problem was to update the libertine fonts, as stated by Ulrike. – bioslime Jan 29 '13 at 16:23
