Please provide a minimal working example of what didn't work, and post also the .log file generated by the result.

You might also need to add:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}


before the mathptmx line. There's also the txfonts package to try.

Is \usepackage{mathptmx} consider as Times new Roman? I use the word
\usepackage{times}\renewcommand\rmdefault{stb} this is Times new roman, but no bold and italic. It also increases the pages. SO which one is appropriate for times new roman.

Hi Fazli,

mathptmx is Times Roman. If you would like to read about the difference, see: Times Roman and Times New Roman

Another Times package is txfonts, an there's an extension txfontsb. All these font packages can be loaded by \usepackage.

Strictly speaking these packages provide access to the font Nimbus Roman No9 L, which is very similar to Times New Roman.

If you want the real Times New Roman then you could use XeTeX, assuming you have the TrueType real Times New Roman font installed for use by your operating system. For example:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[MnSymbol]{mathspec}
\setallmainfonts{Times New Roman}
\begin{document}
This is \textbf{Times New Roman}.

Here is some nonsense \emph{math}:

\[
 \int_a^b \sin \pi x~dx = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \theta^n
\
]
\end{document
}

Then run xelatex on that *.tex file. That will make the text and math fonts Times New Roman, with MnSymbol used only for the math symbols (e.g. the integral and summation symbols). Without passing the MnSymbol option to the mathspec package the symbols would be in Computer Modern, which doesn't look that good with Times New Roman.

Very good addition!

By the way, in that case you should also enable TeX ligatures such as `` and '' for quoting glyphs and -- and --- for dashes, as I wrote in MLA style recommendation and quotation marks with XeLaTeX. Otherwise they would not work.

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\setallmainfonts[Ligatures=TeX]{Times New Roman}
