I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, or even if I'm doing anything wrong. I'm using TypeTool2 on Mac OSX. I've created a new font, and I want to define a glyph for Unicode 0x0141 (L with Slash). The array of export options is a bit bewildering to me, but what I've used is:
In the Font window:
Codepage: MacOS Roman
When I Generate Font:
PC True Type
Type 1 Export Options (I guess these don't matter):
- Make PFM file
- Make AFM and INF files
- Encoding options: Select encoding automatically
True Type Export Options:
- Export hinted TrueType fonts
- Keep existing TrueType instructions
- Export visual TrueType hints
- Autohint unhinted glyphs
Then I go ahead and install the generated font.
The problem is, I have a file which contains a single \u0141 character. When I open the file up in TextEdit, it shows up properly as L with Slash in the default font (Monaco). However, when I change fonts to my font, the L with Slash remains exactly the same, and does not appear as in my font. All other letters (A-Z, etc) appear as they should in my font.
What is wrong with the font? I defined \u0141, so why isn't it being used?
Any help is appreciated!
