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?
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?
