## theEric one year ago How can I go back to the default font after using \sf?

• This Question is Closed
1. e.mccormick

On OS or in general?

2. theEric

Just on OS, thanks!

3. theEric

For some of the fonts, brackets don't contain only the select text you want to change. So I'd want to change back. But I couldn't find the default font, so I though I'd ask!

4. e.mccormick

Only what is in { } should be changed. Or if you mean for resizing, $$\Huge Huge\normalsize normalsize$$ $$\Huge Huge\normalsize normalsize$$

5. e.mccormick

Hmm... brackets not containing it? Odd.

6. e.mccormick

Which fonts are you seeing that with?

7. theEric

\it is close, but not quite the same. Plus, $$normal[]\left[\right]\rightarrow\it it[]\left[\right]$$

8. theEric

thomasters tutorial mentioned the two fonts that did contain the text! I think \boldsymbol was one, and I forget the other.

9. theEric

In $$normal[]\left[\right]\rightarrow\it it[]\left[\right]$$ The first pair of brackets for each is just typing, and the next are \left[\right]

10. theEric

\it seems to condense the letters some, but the letters look similar otherwise.

11. e.mccormick

$$\it Italic$$ $$\rm Roman$$ Hmmm.... I think it supposed to be \em or \sl but I do not see them as working.

12. theEric

Thanks for giving it a shot :)

13. e.mccormick

$$\it Italic \normalfont normalfont$$ =(

14. theEric

Haha, I wish it was that easy, like \normalsize !

15. e.mccormick

It is supposed to be. http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Fonts

16. theEric

$$regular \\\Roman {regular}$$

17. theEric

Is that the normal font? I guess it looks the same!

18. theEric

$$[]\sf[]\Roman []$$It does nothing, huh. I thought it had in the live reply for a moment..

19. e.mccormick

$$\tt asdf$$ Hmm.. tt works. $$\it Italic~ \rm rm \leftarrow$$ rm for roman.

20. theEric

Oh, thanks!

21. e.mccormick

bf bold face it italic rm roman tt teletype/texttype bb blackboard There are a couple others, I just remember all the 2 letter off hand.

22. theEric

$$regular\tt regular$$ Haha, cool!

23. e.mccormick

\bf $$\bf asdfghjkl$$ \em $$\em asdfghjkl$$ \it $$\it asdfghjkl$$ \rm $$\rm asdfghjkl$$ \sc $$\sc asdfghjkl$$ \sf $$\sf asdfghjkl$$ Hmm... I though that was ss for SansSerif. \sl $$\sl asdfghjkl$$ \tt $$\tt asdfghjkl~$$

24. theEric

This may remain a mystery for ages..

25. e.mccormick

Well, these are the old commands so I'm surprised MathJax even supported them.

26. theEric

I'm not up to date on all this stuff!

27. theEric

Thanks! Take care!

28. e.mccormick

This has more the new stuff int he editor. Easy place to prototype and copy over. It does support a few things that here does not, but a lot of it works fine. http://www.codecogs.com/eqneditor

Have fun!

Alright, thanks! :)
