Install different font series files in Latex to compile with pdftex

Postby Bolle1989 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 3:46 pm

I have a problem with compiling my otf "Thesis" font. I have different font families like `TheSerif`, `TheSans` and `TheMix`. Every font family consists of different font series for example bold, italic, regular, caps etc. How is it possible to combine these font series with the autoinst? If I try to run

autoinst TheSerif-5-Regular.otf TheSerif-5-RegularCaps.otf I just get this:

[ERROR] I failed to parse all fonts in a unique way; presumably some fonts have unusual widths, weights or shapes.

I have already managed to install the individual font families but without caps and expert. I can't use caps etc. because I'm not able to combine the font series for example caps with regular. You can see the available files in the figures. If I compile I always get errors like

Font shape `LY1/TheSerif-TLF/m/scit' undefined(Font) using `LY1/TheSerif-TLF/m/n' instead

because the caps etc. are missing.

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{scrbook}
  2. \usepackage{blindtext}
  3. \usepackage{TheSerif} % caps missing
  4. \usepackage{TheSans} % same here
  5. \usepackage[LY1]{fontenc}
  6. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  7. \usepackage{biblatex}
  8. \addbibresource{biblatex-examples.bib}
  10. \begin{document}
  11. \blinddocument
  12. \nocite{*}
  13. \printbibliography
  14. \end{document}

I think this can be a memory problem. Perhaps a font cache type cannot load gray glyphs because it is full of all the glyphs used elsewhere in my dissertation. Is it right?
Is text converter remains unique at fontvilla due to the fact that it has been written using Unicode text changer? :shock:
