    • Add user defined character in the font

      Hello,

      I wanted to add user defined characters in the existing font. If this is possible then is there any specific user space available to add and assign unicode to that character?

      Thanks,
      Vikram
    • Hi,

      you can add custom characters to a font. There are many unicode areas that are unassigned (e.g. 0x700-0x8FF), so you can freely add any custom characters to these areas.

      The best way would probably to do this in a dedicated font editor program, but it is possible using the Font Converter.

      You can manipulate the character bitmap using the Font Converter by inserting/deleting rows/column using the buttons above and by right-clicking the pixels to set a shade of gray. The manual provides more detailed usage on how to use the Font Converter.

      A free demo version of the Font Converter is available on our website. The demo version has no limitations in functionality, but is only allowed for non-commercial use.

      Best regards,

      Florian
