__NOTOC__
First, have a look at the [[ConTeXt distribution's Fonts|21 provided fonts]] and their "nickname".the associated typescript name:
* Latin Modern: latinmodern (includes serif, sans serif, math, and monospaced)* Tex Gyre** pagella &#10132; palatino** termes &#10132; times** heros &#10132; helvetica** bonum &#10132; bookman** scholas &#10132; choolbook** adventor &#10132; avantgarde** cursor &#10132; courier** chorus &#10132; chancery= Change the font used in the document =
To change the font used in the entire document (including headers and footers), use {{cmd|setupbodyfont}} and the associated [[ConTeXt distribution's Fonts|typescript name]].
= How to use one of the provided fonts =: <texcode>\setupbodyfont[thetypescriptname]</texcode>
; #1By default, the font is used at 11pt. Declare To change the font size, specify the font you want size with the the typescript name. For example, to switch to 10pt, use for your document with : : <texcode>\setupbodyfont[typescriptname, 10pt]</texcode> By default, the serif (or roman) style of the font is used. To switch to sans serif style, add <code>ss</code> to {{cmd|setupbodyfont}}: : <texcode>\setupbodyfont[typescriptname, ss]</texcode> These options can be combined. So, to get sans serif font at 12pt, use: :* <texcode>\setupbodyfont[thefontnicknametypescriptname, ss, 12pt]</texcode>
; #2. Specify the font size
:* <texcode>\setupbodyfont[xxpt]</texcode>
To learn how to use different alternative styles of a given font, like regular / bold / italic, see the [[Font_Switching]] in the [[Basics]].
Let see what give the defaults:
<context source=yes>
\setupbodyfont[12pt10pt\startlines\normal{Upright: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\unknown}\bold{Bold: The quick brown fox \unknown}\italic{\bf Italic: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\unknown}\\bolditalic{\it Bolditalic: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\unknown}\\stoplines
</context>
|
And let's add view the reference to difference with Tex Gyre Pagella Serif font:
<context source=yes>
\setupbodyfont[pagella,10pt] \setupbodyfont[12pt]startlines\normal{Upright: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\unknown}\bold{Bold: The quick brown fox \unknown}\italic{\bf Italic: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\unknown}\\bolditalic{\it Bolditalic: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog\unknown}\\stoplines
</context>
}}
You can switch to any other font with {{cmd|switchtobodyfont}}. = How to mix the provided fonts = ; #1. With {{cmd|definefontfamily}}, give a name to the set of fonts you want to use more than one , and indicate a first font.:* Let's start with a Serif font, for which TeX practice is to refer to them as '''rm''' for Roman<texcode>\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][rm][familynameoftheseriffont]</texcode>:* '''!!! WARNING !!!, ''', it's not the '''typescript name''' that we have to use, but the '''family name''' of the provided font :** see under each [[ConTeXt distribution's Fonts|preview in the overview table]]:** or use <code>mtxrun --script font --list --file -pattern=*typescriptname*</code> like <code>mtxrun --script font --list --file -pattern=*pagella*</code> ; #2. For the other fonts, just continue to add them to your font family. :* '''ss''' for Sans Serif, '''tt''' for TypewriTer, '''mm''' for MatheMatics. <texcode>\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][ss][familynameofthesansseriffont]\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][tt][familynameofthemonospacedfont]\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][mm][familynameofthemathfont]</texcode>:* As you see, a limit here is that in TeX practice, we only have one roman, one sans serif... per font family.:* in order to use more fonts =, like width variation ("condensed",...), and weight variation ("light",...), we have to define other font family (MyFontIdentifier-condensed, MyFontIdentifier-light), and to switch between them along the document, with {{cmd|switchtobodyfont}}. ; #3. Declare your font family as the default for your document with {{cmd|setupbodyfont}}, as you would do for a typescript.<texcode>\setupbodyfont[MyFontIdentifier]</texcode>
; #1. Very similarly to above, just add more font in your font family.
:* for a Sans Serif font, for which TeX practice is to refer to them as '''Sans Serif''' (=ss)
:* <texcode>\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][ss][refcode to the sans serif font]</texcode>
:* for a monospaced font, for which TeX practice is to refer to them as '''TypewriTer''' (=tt)
:* <texcode>\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][tt][refcode to the monospaced font]</texcode>
:* for a math font, for which TeX practice is to refer to them as '''MatheMatics''' (=mm)
:* <texcode>\definefontfamily[MyFontIdentifier][mm][refcode to the math font]</texcode>
:* the limit is that in TeX practice, we only have one roman, one sans serif, per font family.
:* in order to use more (like variation condensed, extralight etc...) we have to define other font family (MyFontIdentifier-condensed, MyFontIdentifier-light)

This basic input is typeset with the default font, Latin Modern:

And by adding let's view the two lines discussed above, and using the reference to Tex Gyre Pagella Serif font (texgyrepagella) we obtaindifference with our new set of fonts:
