Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Hi Erwin,

I just wanted to tell you that I took your advice, completely revamped my font, and now have one that has 221 glyphs that happily show up in Word 2016.

So thank you for all your help. I learned a lot, and am happily planning to start work on my second font.

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

I am mostly concerned, not about the difference between the symbol and unicode versions of my font, but how to get the alt symbols that are missing in Word 2016 to show up. Attached are samples from a Word 2010 (left) and Word 2016 (right) expression of the font. Note how some of the alt characters,...

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Here is the font as symbol font. All glyphs work fine, even those using the ALT + number, on Word 2010. Some of the glyphs do not work on Word 2016.

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Note the space between the first and second symbol in the two images, they are closer together in the second grouping than the first grouping. The Mercury, Venus and Mars symbols are considerably farther apart in the second grouping. Yes. But the spacing of the symbol font is the way I want it, and...

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Changing from symbol to unicode change the spacing between the glyphs. I had the spacing just exactly the way I needed it, but when I changed to unicode, and then installed the revised font...it changed the spacing moving some glyphs much closer together. So no, the glyphs did not look different, bu...

Re: Font issue in Word 2016

Thank you. Yes, I have read the manual. Several of the glyphs on the font look better when I created a symbol font, than when I converted it to a unicode font. So I have tried the latter, and went back to symbol. It is very much a mystery why some glyphs work in Word 2010 but not in Word 2016 I also...

Font issue in Word 2016

I am hoping there is some way you can suggest I tweak my font to resolve an issue. I created a symbol font, which installed on Windows computers with no problem, and has worked quite well on Microsoft Office 2010 products like Word and Excel. All of the symbols also show quite clearly on the Windows...
