Looking for a font that matches fontawesome's hashtag

Postby arobase » Tue Oct 01, 2019 12:31 pm

I'm not very familiar with font, so parsing the catalogue is no substitute for trying, which would be tedious for every font. The first example would be fine if `foo`'s was more "awesome". In the second example, the hashtag is too meek. Any suggestion?

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{minimal}
  2. \usepackage{fontawesome}
  3. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  5. \begin{document}
  7. \faHashtag {\fontfamily{qcr}\selectfont\bfseries \em foo}
  9. {\fontfamily{qcr}\selectfont\bfseries \em \# foo}
  11. \end{document}

With a bit of trial and error I much prefer the second approach, as awesome is "rigid" (always looks bold whether `bfseries` used or not). So, this question is void. The only thing to do is to bind the hashtag with the remainder like this: `\#foo`.
