Toolbars - Preview

Previous  Next

While editing a font, you can preview the results with the Preview toolbar. You can choose a standard text sample from the drop-down list or enter your own text. It can be toggled on and off using the F8 shortcut key and is available in both the Font Overview window and the Glyph Edit window.

Selected glyphs in the overview window can be displayed in the Preview toolbar by pressing the "P" shortcut key.


Change the value of the Font Size field to change the size of the text. Check the kerning box to include kerning support. The Preview toolbar can be resized to show more text.


Note to enter non-ASCII characters enable Unicode Support or use \<CODE> where <CODE> is a 4-digit hexadecimal number that indicates the Unicode value. To enter a backslash type it twice: \\.
