Hi everybody,
Below is a test file that describes the problem, which is as follows. I want to use the Zapf Chancery font to display the letter A in math mode. To do so, I use the command \DeclareMathAlphabet{\zcit}{T1}{pzc}{m}{it}. This produces the desired A, but the symbol is too small and I would like to increase its size to match that of the symbol obtained with \mathcal(A).
I have spent a fair amount of time scouring documents, books, the web, to no avail. Asking the list is my last resort.
Thanks in advance.
Happy holidays,
Raul Martinez

$\backslash$mathcal command \\
$\mathcal{A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z}$ \\
Declared a math alphabet with the command \\
$\backslash$DeclareMathAlphabet\{$\backslash$zcit\}\{T1\}\{pzc\}\{m\}\{it\} \\
The following command compares the symbol size \\
\$$\backslash$zcit\{A\}, $\backslash$mathcal\{A\}\$ \\
$\zcit{A}, \mathcal{A}$ \\
How can the size of $\zcit{A}$ be increased to match the size of $ \mathcal{A}$?
