# CTAN Update: savesym

Date: September 3, 2013 5:46:34 PM CEST
Jürgen Göbel submitted an update to the savesym package. Version number: 1.2 License type: lppl Summary description: There are a number of symbols (e.g., \Square) that are defined by several packages. In order to typeset all the variants in a document, we have to give the glyph a unique name. To do that, we define \savesymbol{XXX}, which renames a symbol from \XXX to \origXXX, and \restoresymbols{yyy}{XXX}, which renames \origXXX back to \XXX and defines a new command, \yyyXXX, which corresponds to the most recently loaded version of \XXX. Announcement text:
v1.2 2013/09/02 changed \ProvidesPackage{savesymbol} to \ProvidesPackage{savesym} according to package name (thanks to Alvaro) changed mail address of maintainer
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/savesym/savesym.sty More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/savesym We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

## savesym – Redefine symbols where names conflict

There are a number of symbols (e.g., \Square) that are defined by several packages. In order to typeset all the variants in a document, we have to give the glyph a unique name. To do that, we define \savesymbol{XXX}, which renames a symbol from \XXX to \origXXX, and \restoresymbols{yyy}{XXX}, which renames \origXXX back to \XXX and defines a new command, \yyyXXX, which corresponds to the most recently loaded version of \XXX.
