MiKTeX Package Information –
Therefore, you can get mixrotype same output with automatic font expansion by running dvilualatex instead of latex — and forcing microtype to enable font expansion: This results in the differences in output you observe. Typographic techniques applied by microtype are not desirable in some situations. Interactive example sounds good Hello, thanks for the article! Just for the record: I have been trying to figure out how to convert Adobe Garamond Pro from opentype for a long time, and have had no luck with anything.
This code adds negative spacing around character “1” resulting in a more symmetrical placement of the period between “1” and “3”, and positive spacing around en-dash. The code shown below is a modified example taken from the microtype documentationand it enables protrusion of superscript numbers:.
Microtype is one of the most notable packages I have ever used with LaTeX.
microtype – Subliminal refinements towards typographical perfection
I’m voting to close this question as off-topic because it was solved by an answer in a comment. John Owens at UC Davis has a very nice script called otfinst. Using information from the FIFA World Cup, our results suggest that Poisson and kernel regressions significantly outperform the forecasts of ordered probit models.
I am using microtype package for good kerning text output. While the comma is clearly protruded in the figure above, this is not the case for the superscript “81”, which does not cross the margin while it should.
Microtype – Thesis in LaTeX
This way, I can see what revision a hardcopy comes from — and then use latexdiff-svn to compare its contents to those of the current version. With micortype enabled it microtpye about 3 minutes to run, which is an increase in the run time of a factor of 60x.
Additional microfype I tried included:. The microtype package, which you may already have installed, provides a convenient interface to these features. I need a same kind of output both pdflatex and dvips-ps-pd f output.
However, I do have another cases where the compile time has not quite improved as much: Moriambar 7, 3 18 Sign up using Email and Password. So you would have to change the font encoding to something non-Unicode and, if you don’t want Computer Modern, choose an appropriate font, eg Agreeing with HeikoOberdiek, I vote to reopen I would have something new to add were I be able to answer.
Should I always load the microtype package with pdflatex? In my thesis almost all superscrips in the main text not in math mode are bibliographic reference numbers. The kerning space is totally changed pdflatex output and dvips-ps-pdf output. This actually helps to make the margin look less ragged than if they were aligned strictly to the left of the right margin.
Therefore, the next step was to activate protrusion for the superscript-sized text. See the both image output.
I would like to disable the features of the microtype package for a portion of the document.
