New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am stuck at one point in FontLab and hope someone can help me.
I would like to integrate arrows in a TrueType font using FontLab: arrow right and arrow left.
The font should be used as a webfont later and i don´t want to build in images for arrows anymore.
To achieve this I proceeded as follows in FontLab:
- Create a Glyph in an empty grey box wich is marked yellow in the font-window
I understand that glyphs, that are not yellow do not belong to the currently selected encoding, codepage or Unicode range
- then i rename the glypgh-name to "arrowright" (using the context-Menue) and generate the unicode index for it (2192) using the little diamond
- After that action the Glyph is marked as grey (unencoded?) and it goes to the end-section in the font-window.
The arrow does not appear in the exported font. I tried TrueType and OpenType.
The font consist of 234 glyphs.
Do you have any ideas, what i am doing wrong?
Does the unicode codepage not support arrows?
I would be grateful for any hint.
