Hi, i'm brand new here on typophile and also brand new to making fonts and fontlab and before anything let me apologize for my bad english, i'm art director and illustrator from Brazil. My question is simple: how can i add more characters on the FontLab window so i can see other characters for other languages? Right now i have the A-Z, a-z and 0-9 and a few others, but i want to make the font available for more languages. I see in fontforge a lot of characters that doesnt show on the fontlab window. Sorry if my question is silly. Anyway thanks in advance.

At the bottom of the Font window you should see some pop-up menus. Choose "Codepages" from the mode pop-up, and then choose the code page you want from the next menu to the right.

Alternatively, you can choose "Unicode Ranges" from the first pop-up and then choose a range from the other menu.

After choosing one of these display mode/glyph range combinations, the Font window will display the appropriate templates for various ranges of glyphs.

By default the pop-up menu is at the top of the window. And 4 buttons to select the mode.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've had it set this way for so long I forgot about that.
