times font again!

Hi. I want to change the fonts of my document (including formulas) to times font.


I have found the following post, which is exactly what I need. I post it again because I cannot see a straight answer. Thanks to anyone.


Hello everyone,

I use scientific WorkPlace version 5 to write papers that contain both text and mathematics. I have added the following packages: amsmath, amsfonts, amssymb, eurosym, harvard,setspace, footmisc, color, geometry and caption. My problem:

I should use the font style Times. I actually do not know what my current font style is. However, it does not look like Times. How can I change the font style for my whole article (both text and mathematics) to Times? I have tried to add the additional packages "times" or/and "mathptmx" and if I then typeset the file to pdf it will be told that there is a fatal error and the pdf cannot be completed. What is wrong? What should I do?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Best regards!
