[OS X TeX] RE: Creating a new math character

I am not looking for the "for all" symbol. The V with a horizontal line through it is used in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics to represent the volume---and to distinguish it from the velocity, which is written (or typed) as a v without a horizontal line through it.

Unlike the "for all" symbol, the horizontal line on the volume character extends past the sides of the V.

Are you looking for this: ∀, FOR ALL at U+2200? In Arev Sans, Asana  
Math, DejaVu, Free{Sans,Serif, Mono}, MnSymbol, STIX, Unicode Symbols...

You could take an A and rotate it (with \rotatebox in graphics) by  

Have you checked /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/doc/latex/ 



If it does exist, it's out of date.
