This doesn't work:
\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{lmtt}
\usepackage{MinionPro}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[frak=boondox,bb=boondox,cal=boondoxo]{mathalfa}
\begin{document}
\[y=\mathfrak{F}\mathbb{B}\]
\end{document}
I get an error message telling me that \mathfrak is already defined. This does work however:
\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{lmtt}
\usepackage[frak=boondox,bb=boondox,cal=boondoxo]{mathalfa}
\usepackage{MinionPro}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\begin{document}
\[y=\mathfrak{F}\mathbb{B}\
\end{document}
After a lot of experimentation, I found one clue having to do with use of \boldsymbol. If I typeset
\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{lmtt}
\usepackage[frak=boondox,bb=boondox,cal=boondoxo]{mathalfa}
\usepackage{MinionPro}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
%SetFonts
\begin{document}
$\boldsymbol{a}$
$\mathbb{F}$
\end{document}
I get no errors. However, if I typeset
\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{lmtt}
\usepackage[frak=boondox,bb=boondox,cal=boondoxo]{mathalfa}
\usepackage{MinionPro}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
%SetFonts
\begin{document}
$\boldsymbol{a}$
$\mathbb{F}$
$\boldsymbol{a}$
$\mathbb{F}$
\end{document}
I get the error message
\reserved at b ->\relax
\ifmmode \else \non at alpherr \mathbb \fi \use at mathgroup...
l.11 $\mathbb{F}
I had \boldsymbol within a macro and no where else. (That particular macro was created years ago.) I removed it, and now instead of producing an error on a \mathbb within the first few pages, the LaTeX compiler processes probably hundreds of \mathbb before stopping on a \mathbb on page 67 with a similar error message.
So, apparently there is now some other problem aside from use of \boldsymbol that I have to hunt down and weed out (tomorrow -- it's really late here). Do you still want to see my full preamble?
