Matrix Font Style

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to get a matrix font style for typesetting in Mathematica or do I simply make the regular typesetting boldface. I'm thinking of the matrix style that is used in MathType, which looks to be boldface and non-italicized.

Gregory,

What type of cells do you want to change: input cells, output cells, text cells, etc.?

Text in text cells is very easy to change with the Format menu. You can also set up a stylesheet definition, which will make all of your text cells be in boldface, for example. (I can help with that if you need assistance.)

You can also use Style[] to change the font used for typesetting output, and this can even be applied after TraditionalForm[]. Some examples:
Style[TraditionalForm[RandomInteger[{0, 9}, {5, 5}]],
FontFamily -> "Arial"]

Style[TraditionalForm[Integrate[x^2 + 2 x + 1, {x, 0, 2 \[Pi]}]],
FontFamily -> "Georgia", 18, Bold]

Let us know exactly what you'd like to do and we'll figure out the best solution.

Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Thank you for the suggestions. Today, I had been doing, more or less, what you suggested, and that is using a combination of the Format menu and the Style[] command. I guess I'm on the right track.

Regards,

Gregory

Gregory,

OK, cool. If you run into any snags, let us know.

And if anyone has other suggestions, please weigh in --- this is an area that I like to learn about as well. :D

Cheers,
Michael
