Using Bookmarks

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Sat Jan 28, 2006 11:10 am

If you need to work on large fonts, Font Creator's bookmark feature is invaluable. Control + Shift + Digit sets a bookmark, while Control + Digit goes to that bookmark. The bookmarks are stored in a plain text file called (surprise :shock: ) bookmarks.txt, which is stored in the Font Creator Application Data directory.

Each line in the text file is just the Hexidecimal code-point of the bookmark. If you have a preferred set of bookmarks that you wish to backup, just make a copy of bookmarks.txt and copy it over bookmarks.txt if your bookmarks get changed by mistake.


Control + 1 goto start of Latin 1 Supplement
Control + 2 goto start of Latin Extended-A
Control + 3 goto start of Latin Extended-B
Control + 4 goto start of Latin Extended Additional
Control + 5 goto start of General Punctuation
Control + 6 goto start of Currency Symbols
Control + 7 goto start of Arrows
Control + 8 goto start of Mathematical Operators
Control + 9 goto start of Geometric Shapes
Control + 0 goto start of Miscellaneous Symbols

Control + Home will go to the start of the font
Control + End will go to the end of the font
