IIRC, the shape that is "easier" to recognize as a Q has been chosen as the default one;
this was a deliberate decision.

mtpro expects the font (TFM) name that is used in the new Lucida
distribution. If you get the "new Lucida" to work on Y&Y TeX, the
lucidacal option for mtpro will work, too.

With the latest (and hopefully final) beta release, the [boldalphabet] option does not exist any more, and the \mathbold alphabet is always available by default. Just read the announcement and the documentation! I have dared to introduce this change, because the were no reports about the boldalphabe...

@murray:

Yes, there was a bug concerning \sim, but it should have been fixed
in the meantime. Please, make sure to use the latest version of the fonts,
both on Y&Y-TeX and on MikTeX. It seems as if you had erroneaoul y
installed wrong tfm and/or pfb files on MikTeX.

Re: bad \sim in subscript, mtp2 beta 0.991

As a subscript, the \sim character is neither printing clearly nor previewing clearly in MiKTeX. [...] On the other hand, this symbol is OK in PCTeX. What do you mean by "MikTex" vs "PCTeX"? Did you create Postscipt or PDF output? Which Postscript or PDF viewer are you using? Ar...

good news:

Mike Spivak has found a new implementation for the subscript correction,
which should behave like standard LaTeX, i.e., _\text and _\mathrm should
no longer fail. There will soon be a beta release including this patch.

Michael, the issue is not specific for the \text command: For instance, in standard LaTeX (without subscript correction) you can also write $a_\mathrm{b}$, whereas $a_\hat{b}$ would not work. That's why omitting the braces in these cases is dangerous and is never recommended. Maybe I should have wri...

Re: subscriptcorrection

In addition I suggest to add a line to the mtproII manual saying that bad style LaTeX such as a_\text{b} is not supported by MTProII. I suppose that should resolve the issue. Since we agree that the syntax in question is officially unsupported, anyway, this looks like an appropriate solution to me....

Re: subscriptcorrection

a_\text{b} works when I use Y&Y MathTime (mathtimy) I suppose it works only because you forgot to enable subscript correction with mathtimy (if it supports subscript correction at all). (If I'm wrong, I'd kindly ask you to send me the package code of mathtimy.) When I use (on a non-Y&Y-TeX-...

v0.991 -- an important request to the beta testers

Dear beta testers, from now on, please, load the mtpro2 package always with the option [boldalphabet], regardless of whether or not this is needed in fact.. It would be important for me to know whether doing so causes any compatibility problems with existing documents or macro packages. Please, try ...

I have consulted three LaTeX textbooks for beginners wrt/ this topic: None of these implies that you may omit the braces after the underscore (unless there follows one single character only, of course). Also, I remember having learned that omitting the braces is "bad style", and that I hav...

Re: Y&Y and MiKTeX installation of MTPro

4. Compiled the same file as under A.3 with Y&Y latex. The text font that showed up in the DVI file was computer modern. I had to add \usepackage[LY1]{fontenc} before loading the times and mtpro2 packages. Then I got same result as with MiKTeX. Using LY1 encoding works fine with MiKTeX, too, so...

Preliminary anwers: 1) Using T1 encoding with Times cannot work on Y&Y-TeX. Y&Y-TeX supports Times and other fonts from the non-TeX world only with LY1 encoding. 2) Updating psnfss on Y&Y-TeX is pointless. The psnfsss collection supports the Base35 fonts with OT1 and T1/TS1 encoding, whi...

I find it unfortunate that one needs the option 'subscriptcorrection' to get things like $\varepsilon_{j},\varepsilon_{k}, \varepsilon_{l}$ to look 'right'. Why is that needed? ??? Because TeX can' t control that via font metrics alone. (Mike ?) Or are you asking why subscriptcorrection is not enab...
