Description umr5174 2005-05-31 11:44:10 UTC
If I insert symbols thank to the Catalog, they don't belong to any of the chosen
fonts.
If I change the fonts afterwards, this doesn't apply to these symbols.
The used font is not my text document default one either.
A consequence is that symbols in my formulae don't look like the same symbols in
my text.

Of course, some installed fonts don't provide these symbols, so greek and
mathematical symbols could be optionaly exempted from formula chosen fonts, but
this can't be systematic, specially when the user uses Unicode charset.

Moreover, if I want to change symbols font by using symbol editor, I have to do
it one symbol at a time !

Hm, at the moment I cannot imagine what is going on here. Could you please

issue when you have done so.
Thank you very much for supporting us!

I hope the 2 attachments make the point clearer.

The symbols have their own fonts (including the typeface), which is assigned in
the symbol catalog.
Because all the fonts are not equal (do not contain the same characters/symbols)
a different way won't work. If you create a symbol via catalog from the
OpenSymbol font, which is not available e.g. in "Times new Roman" it would be
displayed wrongly  if you try to apply "Times New Roman" to this symbol in the
command window.
Comment 8 michael.ruess 2005-06-24 07:43:33 UTC
Cclosed. This is also the reason, why these symbols have to be inserted via the
syntax e.g. "%APLPHA"
