arrows

Hello Forum,

I am stuck at one point in FontLab and hope someone can help me.
I would like to integrate arrows in a TrueType font using FontLab: arrow right and arrow left.
The font should be used as a webfont later and i don´t want to build in images for arrows anymore.

To achieve this I proceeded as follows in FontLab:
- Create a Glyph in an empty grey box wich is marked yellow in the font-window
I understand that glyphs, that are not yellow do not belong to the currently selected encoding, codepage or Unicode range
- then i rename the glypgh-name to "arrowright" (using the context-Menue) and generate the unicode index for it (2192) using the little diamond
- After that action the Glyph is marked as grey (unencoded?) and it goes to the end-section in the font-window.

Arrows

Hi, Typophilers,

I use mac and word 2011. Sometimes I place directional arrows into word documents to indicate direction or flow and was wondering. In the fonts I am using, I can see that they have encodings for the following:

U+2190 arrowleft
U+2191 arrowup
U+2192 arrowright
U+2193 arrowdown
U+2196 arrowupleft
U+2197 arrowupright
U+2198 arrowdownright and
U+2199 arrowdownleft

Robin is a dingbats font in OpenType format that allows you to compose easily an infinity of arrows thanks to a logical use of the keyboard: as long as you want, as sharp as you want, as simple or decorative as you want.
