# [OS X TeX] Minion and Minion Pro

Sun Apr 8 18:19:18 EDT 2012

Michael,

It worked! I immediately typeset using the MinionPro package and MnSymbol, and it looks beautiful! As a bonus, the greek characters and italic text are of perfect weight. Skimming through about 180 pages I only noticed one problem:

\DeclareMathOperator{\AUT}{\widetilde{Aut}\mspace{1mu}}
…

$\AUT (\scr{X})$

puts a capital C over Aut rather than a wide tilde. But, for example, $\widetilde{\psi}$ works as expected. I'll explore this later tonight after dinner. If there is a bug in MnSymbol or MinionPro, there may be a workaround.

You may make changes by pressing 'other updmapsettings' on the 'updmap diffs' tab." I now have all four of the check boxes checked. The one that was set to false was "dvipsDownloadBase35 …"

The problem is that gs has at least one flawed font, Zapf Chancery, (it is sized nearly 20% too small by comparison with the version in TeXLive) and the flawed version is what you get with dvipsDownloadBase35 set to false. Setting it to true bypasses the issue.
