Almost equal to

Post by Karin1610 » Sat Jul 29, 2017 4:08 pm

Hi, I'm totally new to font making, so I hope my question isn't too stupid.
I'm trying to make a school font, and one important character for me is the "Almost equal to" one. (Glyph name is "approxequal").
I have added the glyph, but I have no idea how to actually get it into a text file.
I found out that Word is turning code into characters by typing Alt+C, but that only works in Word.
So how can I make use of this character (and other special ones)?

It's not actually a question about FontCreator, but about using Word or other applications.

Insert a Symbol or Special Character in Word

BabelMap is a better alternative to the Windows Character Map, which can be used to insert symbols and special characters into any Windows Application.

No problem, just saying that it is not something that FontCreator should be used to fix.
