New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hopefully, I do not upset anyone with this question if it is off-topic or not...I'm new to fonts and unsure if this forum is focused purely on the world of print, or also includes digital fonts :-)
The question - are there any available True-Type Font files that actually include glyphs for the control picture range, specifically SOH-STX-ETX... type of control codes to display when those codes are used (vs some of the standard ones I see are smiley, hearts, and upside-down 'L').
A stackoverflow post referenced this document which is indeed what I'm looking for: http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2400.pdf
you are open to flog me if I'm in the wrong area, otherwise I may need some hand-holding if I must 'craft' my own font file if none exist :-)
I've been trying to get in touch with Christian Robertson of Betatype for the last 2 months. Long story short I purchased multiple cuts of the font Pill Gothic for a large scale project. I work in the broadcast industry in Canada and need some modifications made to the font. They are as follows:
1. Convert the Open type to true type
2. Tweak the kerning on a number of character sets
3. Replace the lowercase "a" with the alternate a
Chris agreed to make these modifications but has been missing in action for the last two months. I've sent numerous emails with no response. Our deadlines are fast approaching and I need to get in contact with him. If anyone can provide me with any help or direction it would be much appreciated.
