Toolbars - Samples

The Samples toolbar provides a powerful way of adding some contours you may frequently want to use in fonts or in glyphs.

 

You can use any of these glyphs in your own fonts. The outlines are royalty free. Credits go to:

With the Samples toolbar you can drag and drop a sample glyph to a cell on the Font Overview or Glyph Edit window. The toolbar can be docked or floating, and can be toggled on and off using the F12 shortcut key.

Note: When you drop a sample onto a composite glyph on the Font Overview window it will be converted to a Simple Glyph first.

 

 

You can change the samples by making a special samples font, which includes your own samples. From the Tools menu you go to Options and go to the Samples page. Here you can select the font filename to be used in the Samples toolbar.
