Syntax

Description

  1. typescript identifier
  2. font class
  3. existing font name

Example

In the first example we create a new typeface with the name mainface which includes fonts from the TeX Gyre family. Even though there is no math used in this example it is better to set one because math symbols are sometimes used in text mode.

\definefontfamily [mainface] [rm] [TeX Gyre Pagella]
\definefontfamily [mainface] [ss] [TeX Gyre Heros]
\definefontfamily [mainface] [mm] [TeX Gyre Pagella Math]

\setupbodyfont[mainface]

\starttext
\rm Serif: TeX Gyre Pagella

\ss Sans: TeX Gyre Heros
\stoptext

produces

In this example we are switching the fonts which are used for the upright, italic etc. alternatives. With the help of the style keyword you access one of the predefined styles, by default \definefontfamily uses the following styles for each alternative:

Alternative Style
tf regular
it italic
sl slanted
bf bold
bi bolditalic
sc smallcaps
\definefontfamily[changedstyles][rm][TeX Gyre Pagella][tf=style:italic,it=style:bold,bf=style:bolditalic,bi=style:regular]

\setupbodyfont[pagella]

\starttext
\rm\tf Regular, \it Italic, \bf Bold and \bi BoldItalic.

\switchtobodyfont[changedstyles]

\rm\tf Regular, \it Italic, \bf Bold and \bi BoldItalic.

produces

\definefontfamily[changedfiles][rm][TeX Gyre Pagella][it=file:texgyreherositalic,bi=file:texgyrecursorbolditalic]

\setupbodyfont[changedfiles]

\starttext
\tf Regular, \it Italic, \bf Bold and \bi BoldItalic.

produces

\definefontfamily[changedfeatures][rm][TeX Gyre Pagella][tf=features:smallcaps,bf=features:none]

\setupbodyfont[pagella]

\starttext
\tf ffi, \it ffi, \bf ffi, \bi ffi.

\switchtobodyfont[changedfeatures]

\tf ffi, \it ffi, \bf ffi, \bi ffi.
\stoptext

produces

If it is not possible to install fonts system-wide, one can explicitly specify the filename of a font. Custom fonts often don't come with math symbols or a fitting monospaced font. One can replace these using Latin Modern which comes with ConTeXt.

\definefontfamily [mainface][serif] [Latin Modern Roman]
                  [tf=file:filename_serif_regular.ttf,
                   it=file:filename_serif_italic.ttf,
                   bf=file:filename_serif_bold.ttf,
                   bi=file:filename_serif_bold_italic.ttf,
                   sc=file:filename_serif_smallcaps.ttf]
\definefontfamily [mainface][sans] [Latin Modern Sans]
                  [tf=file:filename_sans_regular.ttf,
                   it=file:filename_sans_italic.ttf,
                   bf=file:filename_sans_bold.ttf,
                   bi=file:filename_sans_bold_italic.ttf,
                   sc=file:filename_sans_smallcaps.ttf]
\definefontfamily   [mainface] [mono] [Latin Modern Mono] [features=none]
\definefontfamily   [mainface] [math] [Latin Modern Math]
\setupbodyfont [mainface,11pt] 
\starttext
\tf ffi, \it ffi, \bf ffi, \bi ffi.
