How to add one letter to your own custom font ttf?

Post by Magistr01 » Thu Jul 18, 2019 12:26 pm

Hi,
In Calligraphr I created my own font ttf. In the free version, the number of allowed characters is 75, but Czech contains 82. To create a font I had to remove 7 characters (Q, q, W, w, X, x, g). I just miss the "g" character and would like to add it to the font in FontCreator. How can I do that. Please take a step-by-step guide.
Thank you for your reply.

Martin Baroch.

  1. In the glyph overview, select glyph "f"
  2. Click the Insert Glyph button on the toolbar
  3. Type g in the add characters by name field
  4. Create the outlines for glyph g in the Glyph Edit Window

Copy a similar glyph such as q, paste it into that position, then use the drawing tools to modify the outlines.
