    Really Urgent Help Is Needed... Updated with more info... Anyone?

    Some additions to the posting below...

    I opened for example FFF Harmony (don't blow up, just for experimental not ripping) and tried to create "" as the other characters. But again when i opened "Character Map" from Accesories menu i couldn't even see this character in the list of that font. How do you identify a new character to that font group? and one more thing for example in "Keystroke: " section "A" has "A" but for the "" there is only "**" without the quotes. and i'm using a Win98SE Turkish Edition with a Turkish Q keyboard. how may i bind the "" character with the one laying on the keyboard as a key.

    Please help i'm stucked....


    I have to questions or so...

    1- I have Fontographer to create new fonts... I went thru the making pixel fonts tutorial by Ex-ess step by step... but the production was completely a surprise. I opened flash wrote somethin in 8pt with my newly created pixel font. But those were too small and boldish(weighted). What i want to ask is, what settings do i need to have a font like FFF_galaxy or alikes ? or kinda Mini 7 , Tenacity (light ones not heavy nor condensed)....

    2- I live in Turkey and as you may guess there are some special letters in our alphabet that are not presented in other languages. I may not give an example because they may not be displayed here correctly but here are the ones --->

    ,,,,,,, or i may say(in case you can't see those) for example "i" without the point above it or "g" with a cap or bar above it(this one's called "Gbreve" as a name and "011E" as unicode and "i" without its dot is called "Dotlessi" as a name and "0131" as unicodic).

    If those are understood i may ask my question. After i created my sample font, i tried to type "Gbreve" but again i got a surprise. A rectangle was standing there instead of my special letter. What's the point? And one more thing, there it says "keystroke" above the character list in the Fontographer in the character info lines. How may i bind the character, itself and the actual key on the keyboard that, when i pressed the key it shows the right character (i have a Turkish Q keyboard). Shortly, i do not want to put this character on the screen by each time pressing ALT+*** so on.

    3- Sorry but last... Is it legal to import a pre-made pixel font and add those characters i mentioned above and use this font group?

    Thank you very much for your helps,

    NOTE: If sepcial letter paragraphs are not explanatory i may convert the characters to bitmap (breaking down) and send a picture of them.

    Hi there,

    Some of the characters that you're inquiring about are not present in FFF HARMONY. In fact, most of our fonts support English and western European languages only. Our newer fonts have an extended character set (ISO Adobe Character Set), and do have the characters that you need (e.g. FFF Executive, FFF Minute).

    If you want to add some characters on your own, you may do so, however, you cannot distribute this font and claim it as yours in any shape or form (see our disclaimer).

    To add those characters, find out their unicode and then go to SELECTION INFO. You can define the new character there with their unicode.

    Unfortunately, we cannot disclose the settings that we use to create the fonts, however, there are some tutorials right here in Flashkit that may help you to achieve what you need. Best of luck
