Removing languages

My recent work on Bot Mono began with Deja Vu, which includes a huge array of extra signs and languages. Of course I can remove individual glyphs by deleting them. But how do I remove whole sets of languages, or extra arrays of special characters?

My second question is about which sets I should include. Latin is a natural choice, as well as the basic arrays of Baltic languages and Greek. But this is a font for code, for programming and the computer shell. I understand there is no such thing as “one standard set of characters” — you can make your font as large or small you want. What I’m looking for is a good common ground, a set that would be useful in daily work (coding) with non-asian, non-african, European languages.

Hello everybody, I have a question and I can't find an answer in the internet.

I'm in a process of designing a typeface - TT Nord. It's not the final design by that link. Anyway, what bothers me is that I've drawn many glyphs, including Cyrillic extended and Latin extended a and b and others. Is there any way to know what languages does my font support? Maybe a script or some kind of a web service?

Thanks in advance?

I’m trying to pick out a font that supports Vietnamese. I can’t seem to figure out a way for Windows to tell me which fonts on my system do, and I can’t even find a place on Adobe’s website that lists which of theirs do. The best I’ve been able to figure out is entering “gỏi cuốn” as the sample text in NexusFont and scrolling through a list of all my installed fonts to see which ones don’t look funny.

Surely there’s a better way?

Hello there,

Is there any resource out there for getting text strings for different languages, characters for testing purposes? I'd like to copy/paste those strings in the preview panel of FL to test characters with diacritics, special characters, numerals, punctuation marks, and so on, but I can't seem to find all the needed characters for the languages I need.


When I do Cmd-I on a a font in Apple Font Book, it shows me a list of languages supported by the font. How is it generated? I assume there is some internal database? Is there any way to extract it?
