So I switched formatting in my thesis to a san serif font because I prefer it and my figures all had san serif fonts in them already and I wanted them to match so... but I have some equations and lots of in-text symbols, superscripts and subscripts using math mode and when I switched to san serif they stayed serif, unless I used \text{} in math mode.

I stumbled upon this post in stack exchange:

I stumbled upon this post in stack exchange:

fontspec required more effort than the one minute I really wanted to spend on it. sfmath didn't work for me??? and cmbright worked first go with just \usepackage{cmbright}. Font blends well with my current (supposedly Arial) san serif font.Some (partial) solutions I found:

- Use
`fontspec`

to change the math fontLike this:`\setmathrm{Arial} \setmathsf{Arial} \setmathtt{Arial} \setboldmathrm[BoldFont={Optima ExtraBlack}]{Optima Bold}`

However thisdoes not changethe italic math font for some reason (and there does not seem to be an option to do this(?)).

- Use
`sfmath`

, which comes with a couple of pre-packaged fonts`\usepackage[cm]{sfmath}`

`\usepackage{cmbright}`

This works fairly well, but the choice of fonts is limited.

- Use
`unicode-math`

in combination with STIX fonts (see here, here and here)For example:`\usepackage{unicode-math} %\usepackage[math-style=ISO]{unicode-math} \setmainfont{XITS} \setmathfont{XITS Math} %\setmathfont[range=\mathit/{latin,Latin}]{Adobe Garamond Pro}`

Although this has the problem that`\setmathfont{}`

gives a bug when used in combination with`amsmath`
