Italic, captial Greek letters (with Latin Modern)
Hello, if I understand Latin Modern correctly, it contains the \Psi both as upright and as italic version (CM has only the upright version). How can I get the italic version? It did not work this way: \usetypescript[modern][texnansi] \setupbodyfont[modern,12pt,ams] \starttext $\Psi$ \stoptext Tobias

you need to 'patch' the math* files where the symbols are defined; an option can be to provide an additional set of definitions; i can also think of something \Var\Psi what do the other mathematicians think Hans

In principle, I would expect $\Psi$ > italic, $\rm \Psi$ upright, $\bf\Psi$ bold upright and $\bi\Psi$ bold italic; this would be consistent with \psi. The only problem is that all upright \Psi get suddenly italic as soon as one switches the font. Since all variables are supposed to be italic (and all units to be upright), I do not think that this poses a problem, though. Regarding \Var\Psi. I'm not sure what you mean by \Var. Currently we have \phi and \varphi and therefore \Var... might be more logical for the few characters that have more than one glyph. Tobias
