## Calligraphic font / calrsfs

Many TeX/LaTeX users are unhappy with the standard calligraphic font. Two packages (calrsfs and mathrsfs) are commonly used to overcome this problem by providing the Ralph Smith (rsfs) fonts. These are not provided by Scientific Word 5x.

Has anyone successfully installed one of these packages into SW (preferably calrsfs) or found another way around the calligraphic font limitation? I am running SW5 under Win 7 X 64.

### The calrsfs package depends

The calrsfs package depends on already having the rsfs fonts installed.  To use with fonts with the TrueTeX Previewer included with SW to be abel to create DVI files, you would need to have a TrueType version of the fonts.  I do not know that they exist.

There are Type 1 fonts at CTAN, so you should be able to add these fonts and compile for PDF.  Following are steps, along the the attachment mentioned by the steps, that allow adding the yhmath package for use with SW when compiling for PDF.  Similar steps would be needed for using the rsfs fonts, in particular step 11 that gives pdflatex information about the existance of the additiona fonts.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{yhmath}

\begin{document}

$$\widehat{A}, \widehat{AB}, \widehat{ABC}, \widehat{ABCD}, \widehat{ABCDE}, \widehat{ABCDEF}, \widehat{ABCDEFG}$$

$$\widetilde{A}, \widetilde{AB}, \widetilde{ABC}, \widetilde{ABCD}, \widetilde{ABCDE}, \widetilde{ABCDEF}, \widetilde{ABCDEFG}$$
\end{document}

Another approach would be to install a separate TeX/LaTeX installation, for example TeX Live 2010, and use this version of LaTeX to compile your documents.
