Accessing Alternate Characters

Glyph Copier
Many of our fonts offer our Glyph Copier method to easily access alternates. Glyph Copier is Letterhead Fonts' new and easy way to use alternate glyphs in applications that don't feature a glyph palette. Kathryn Beesley shows you three simple ways to use this exciting addition to the Letterhead Fonts family.




Adobe Illustrator
Charles Borges de Oliveira demonstrates how to access the character variations of his LHF Desire font using Adobe Illustrator's Glyph Palette. This method will work with all LHF fonts.




Windows Character Map
Charles Borges de Oliveira demonstrates how to access the character variations of his LHF Desire font using the Windows Character Map with Adobe Photoshop. This method will work for all LHF fonts.




PopChar
Charles Borges de Oliveira demonstrates how to access the character variations of his LHF Desire font using PopChar with Adobe Photoshop. This method will work for all LHF fonts.




BabelMap
Patrick Kalange demonstrates how to access LHF Tributary's many character variations using Adobe Photoshop for PC and BabelMap. This method works with all LHF fonts. BabelMap is a free alternative to the default Windows Character Map. If you find it useful, you might want to send its creator Andrew West, a donation through his site: www.babelstone.co.uk




CorelDraw
Now it's easier than ever to find and insert OpenType font special characters, symbols and glyphs in CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT. The revamped Insert Character Docker automatically displays all the characters, symbols and glyphs associated with a particular font. You can also now filter subsets to display only the characters you want. It's a faster, easier way to work with OpenType fonts!




Mac using Font Book
If you're using a Mac, access the glyphs by using Font Book (Finder > Applications > Font Book). Select View and and change to Repertoire. You may then copy the desired glyph using "Command+C" and paste it into your document or drag and drop the glyph into your design application.
