I altered the colour of the background on the palette dialogue panel to become the preset Light Green colour so that the white colour block would show against the background.

The image was produced by using 16 spaces then the folowing 256 characters, at 18 point, though due to the way that the forum software works, the 256 characters are here split into four groups each of 64 characters, simply so as to be able to provide the information in this forum.

Six glyphs are used in the picture itself, with three spaces at the start.

$.0:=[

The glyphs are each a single-colour glyph 2048 font units wide and 2048 font units high.

I realized that I had thus far added six of the colours from the Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2014 palette to the font, so I tried them in a pop art style layout in their order in the FontCreator font overview window.

However, before that idea occurred to me, I had chosen which of the colours to implement first in the font.
