stix2-type1, v2.0.0a

Type 1 versions of STIX 2.0.0 for legacy engines

If you are using or lua, you do not need the files in this directory. See the stix2-otf package instead.

The stix2 package provides support for versions of that are limited to TFM files, Type 1 PostScript fonts, and 8-bit font encodings. Version 2.0.0 of the STIX fonts are being released in this format in hopes of easing the transition from legacy engines to modern fully Unicode-compatible systems. The Type 1 versions are merely a repackaging of the original OpenType versions and should not be viewed as independent entities. Some glyphs that are traditionally available in math fonts are not available in version 2.0.0 of STIX Two. In such cases, we have chosen to omit them from the stix2 package rather than create incompatibilities between the OpenType and Type 1 versions.

Note that while the OpenType versions of these fonts are under active development, no further updates are planned to the Type 1 distribution; future efforts by the STI Pub companies will focus on improving the OpenType fonts. However, patches to the existing Type 1 distribution are welcome and, pending review, will be incorporated into the distribution. Any such patches should be submitted through the github repo at

stix2-type1 – Type1 versions of the STIX Two OpenType fonts

The stix2 package provides minimal support for using the STIX Two fonts with versions of that are limited to TFM files, Type 1 PostScript fonts, and 8-bit font encodings.

Version 2.0.0 of the STIX fonts are being released in this format in hopes of easing the transition from legacy engines to modern fully Unicode-compatible systems.

The Type 1 versions are merely a repackaging of the original OpenType versions and should not be viewed as independent entities. Some glyphs that are traditionally available in math fonts are not yet available in the STIX Two OpenType fonts. In such cases, we have chosen to omit them from the stix2 package rather than create incompatibilities between the OpenType and Type 1 versions. In addition, while development of the OpenType versions is ongoing, no further updates are planned to the Type 1 versions of the fonts.
