A year later the commission grew to include a shaded variant and a set of DIY-like fonts, with different layering possibilities for dimensional manipulation. This design is rooted in a mids Berthold Wolpe typeface called Fanfare. Each of the five Latex fonts come with a character set of over glyphs, supporting the vast majority of Latin languages, as well as Cyrillic and Greek alphabets. Lots of stylistic alternates are also included, including some for Cyrillic and Greek.
The main focus of this document is on the use of fonts in LaTeX, though some wider issues are addressed too. Typesetting's an old, arcane, aesthetics-ridden subject of which fonts are a small but surprisingly complex part. Even apparently simple operations are non-trivial - for example, when a character is enlarged, the lines are proportionally thinner than when the character is reduced.
Is there a way to change the font used? This would provide aesthetic consistency in LaTeX documents. I know you can use tikZ, but there are currently bugs with that functionality, and I find exporting PDFs is a better idea anyway as you can open individual files if you wish.

Within the typesetting system, its name is stylised as L a T e X. LaTeX is widely used in academia   for the communication and publication of scientific documents in many fields, including mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, chemistry, physics, economics, linguistics, quantitative psychology, philosophy, and political science.
