Hello,

I would like to shrink a font based on a text file.

There should be only contain the characters that was given in a text-file.

For Example:
Text-File: "Hello 1234"

Font only have this characters: H, e, l , o, 1, 2, 3, 4

Is this possible with FontCreator? If so, how?
If not, which software can it do?

Thank you very much

best regards
Daniel

I moved your thread to the Support Forum

See the Tip of the Day on Tagging Multiple Glyphs in Several Fonts.

After running the script to select the fonts that you do want (ensure that you include the .notdef glyph), use the shortcut Ctrl+T to invert the selection, and delete the rest.
