Add characters (ligatures etc.) to an already existing font

Post by ibanaham » Thu Jun 13, 2019 6:25 pm

Hi All,

I would like to add some characters (with their ligature shapes etc.) to an already existing font. The font already has similar shapes and I would like to know if their is a way to copy and paste existing characters (with their ligatures etc.) and then adjust them (the glyphs) accordingly.

Thanks

Select the glyphs in the Font Overview and copy them.

Open a new empty glyph and paste the glyphs as composite glyph members in the Glyph Edit Window.

Move them around, then decompose the composite to edit the contours further, join them, etc.
