Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

I agree that the font is a little weird! Unfortunately, I did not make this font. I'm merely a developer picking up the pieces of someone else's work. Although remapping to the PUA is definitely something I've considered doing. In the short term, it looks like Erwin's solution has worked! I don't kn...

Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

Most of the glyphs are multi-mapped to different code points, which is (from what I am seeing in the user manual), a valid behavior. I'm asking why only certain glyphs do not show up correctly. $03E8 is also multi-mapped, but only glyphs in certain blocks are being substituted by windows. When I cre...

Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

So, if you take a look a the top line of the .png you uploaded, you can see some of the fonts I'm having an issue with. The "black circle white star" ($272C) in the top line is one of the offending glyphs. It should display something that looks like a helicopter, instead it shows the original unicod...

Re: Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

Exporting it from Font Creator 10 results in the same behavior, though the font was originally created with Font Creator 5.0

Any other ideas?

Dingbats, other symbols keeping original glyph

Hey there, I have a desktop application that I'm porting over to windows 10. We use a custom font that maps various unrelated glyphs onto unicode code points. This works perfectly in older versions of Windows, but when I go ahead and install the font on Windows 10, it installs the original unicode g...
