Ziyue Xiang submitted the
smart-eqn
package.
Version: 1.0
License: lppl1.3c
Summary description: Automatic math symbol styling for LaTeX documents
Announcement text:

In LaTeX typesetting, it is usually the case that one needs to use different variants of a math symbol to clarify the meanings. For example, in linear algebra literature, it is common to use boldfaced symbols to represent vectors, and normal symbols to represent scalars. However, applying these variants by typing \mathbf, \mathrm commands manually can be daunting. The smart-eqn package aims to provide an automatic and customizable approach for math symbol styling, which eliminates the need to enter style commands repeatedly.

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/smart-eqn The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/smart-eqn/

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

## smart-eqn – Automatic math symbol styling for LaTeX documents

In LaTeX typesetting, one usually needs to use
different variants of a math symbol to clarify the meanings.
For example, in linear algebra literature, it is common to use
boldfaced symbols to represent vectors, and normal symbols to
represent scalars.
However, applying these variants by typing `\mathbf`,
`\mathrm` commands manually can be daunting.
This package aims to provide an automatic and customizable
approach for math symbol styling which eliminates the need
to enter style commands repeatedly.
