Unicode character is not visible in PDF

Postby mpaw » Thu Nov 22, 2018 10:54 pm


I'm new here, as well as a member of this site, and as LaTeX writer.

I need to write unicode sigh (with code U+01B5 and another with code U+01B6). I'm using TeX Live 2018 and TeXworks. I compile to pdfLatex. I tryied to COPY+PASTE this character from character table in Windows, as well as changing compiler to XeLaTex, and write sequence \char"01B5, and other possibilities, which didn't work. I just have blank space in place, where this sign should be located. I found solution to omit using unicode insted of graphical generation of this sign, but it is not clear for me, so I don't want to use it.

How insert into PDF this sign?

Please help, thanks

welcome to the forum!

With the stix or stix2 package:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{stix}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. $\Zbar$
  5. \end{document}
