Symbol or Dingbat Template

Post by KimberlyYlitalo »

I have tried numerous times to generate a font using the 4-page template Symbol or Dingbats, filling in the upper and lower case letters, some symbols, and some dingbats. After scanning and importing all 4 pages, I get EMPTY boxes after I hit generate.

I've tried this numerous times, trying different settings and importing different templates with the same results every time.

I even installed this font with all the boxes thinking that maybe when I use the INSERT button in WORD that it will magically show my hand-drawn font/symbols instead of boxes. Ever the optimist.

Please see a screenshot of my final font after it's generated.

Help please? I have the Premium version of Scanahand.
