How to convert Wansung to Unicode automatically?

Post by fumiko » Sun Oct 27, 2013 7:50 am

I have a Korean font which is mapped on Microsoft Wansung platform, which in turn doesn't support Photoshop typing. So I'd like to convert Wansung codepoints to Unicode ones, but I don't know any way to do. It's a bloody pain to map each codepoint to every single glyph because there are so many glyphs in a Korean font. I'm using FontCreator 5.6 and 7.5, Pro Edition.

I am sure that there won't be any automatic method. Probably the most efficient method is to open a Unicode Korean font and your Wansung Korean font, tile them side by side, and copy paste mappings from the Unicode font to the Wansung font using Paste Special, and paste the mappings only. With luck, you will end up with a font that will work in PhotoShop.

FontCreator 7 and up automatically convert Wansung platform to Unicode.

So just open and export the font should do the trick.
