Re: Right to Left Script

I don't understand anything about Unicode or the other things mentioned in these replies. Could I hire someone to make the font that I desire to write right to left? I have 22 png images of the letters of the script.

Re: Right to Left Script

I don't understand any of this. I have a Windows Codepage to which I printed my desired glyphs. What can I do with it, if anything? Perhaps you could give me step by step instructions as how to arrange for my non-Unicode glyphs to type RTL I could do it. The Unicode codes I referred to are for a dif...

Do I enter the Unicode numbers for that other script in th...

Re: Right to Left Script

Thanks for your prompt reply,
The font I created is not supported by Unicode, but a similar one is. How do I create a "Custom Template"? The link you sent me goes to the opening Scanahand Welcome screen, no instructions or even mention of this.

Right to Left Script

I am trying to make a font of an ancient language that is written right to left. I succeeded with Scanahand to make all of the glyphs, but how can I arrange them to type out right to left, instead of left to right, as they do now?
Thanks for any help!!

Re: New Font from pdf copy & paste

I tried to paste a jpg version of a glyph as you desscribe and the raster image came out flipped with no way to flip it over. I also tried to copy and paste a pdf glyph but it would not paste.

New Font from pdf copy & paste

I want to create a new font of an ancient script that does not have Unicode codes. I have the glyphs from copying them from ancient writings and converting them into jpg and pdf characters. Is there a way I can make them into a new font by copying and pasting them into the program? I am not artistic...
