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.

  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}
