New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've come into a problem whilst trying to compile a font which contains some Japanese characters.
I have a basic Latin character set (MacOS Roman encoding), but with some additional unicode characters such as uni6782, uni571F – these total around 20 different characters.
The font compiles fine from Fontlab, and the characters are accessible in (All on Mac OSX 10.8) TextEdit, Adobe InDesign CS3->CS6, as well as OpenOffice. However, when I try and type these characters (via a japanese keyboard layout) or paste them in, the font reverts to a default system font which contains the characters.
Is there a certain Japanese name I need to apply for Microsoft Office (Word 14.2.0) Mac?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
