Visual Studio

Post by ToddSmee » Fri Dec 13, 2019 3:17 pm

Currently I use a TrueType font within a C# program I wrote. It generates engineering symbols that can be copied and pasted into Word or Excel. I have also embedded the font within the program so it automatically installs on the users computer when the program is installed.

Will I be able to do the same if I create all of the symbols and characters I need using FontCreator?

Also, can I assign "Alt Codes" to these characters?

Sure, you can use it like any other font.

Alt codes work the way they work, with all fonts, but in general it is not the preferred way to access characters.

You can use MainType to find and insert characters, but there are several other ways.
