Questions tagged [fonts]

{fonts} is about fonts and how to use them. It deals with questions about changing family, shape and weight of fonts, but also with font packages. If your question is not about a font in general but about specific symbols, use {symbols} instead. For questions about font sizes, use {fontsize}.
