New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have a font I'm trying to develop which has 2 custom glyphs which are tpic or dingbat-like in nature. I want to preserve the relationship between the normal character glyphs height and the custom glyph height. However the custom glyph image is VERY wide - 2397 wide x 719 high in a 1000 UPM Postscript-flavor OTF font.
As of now. I have placed each in a single glyph cell and assigned them PUI unicode values. In testing so far, the only issue I have seen is the preview in adobes glyoh pallette is getting cropped. Otherwise, things seem fine. I am setting myself for trouble later or is this acceptable practice?
