FontCreator Data Files

Previous 

FontCreator uses several extra data files to read settings and other program specific information. These should not be edited directly, but copied to the windows user data folder. This can be easily done through the Settings dialog on the Advanced tab.

 

Unicode/Blocks.txt

Standard Unicode database file containing the Unicode blocks

Unicode/UnicodeData.txt

Standard Unicode database file containing all the Unicode glyph information

glyphlist.dat

The adobe glyph list

tags.txt

Controls the names of the five tags that can be assigned to each glyph

preview.txt

Contains the standard preview texts for the Preview toolbar

glyphnames.dat

Contains the default glyph names when opening existing fonts and when you generate glyph names on the Glyph Properties dialog

 

Note: Fontcreator only reads these files at startup, this means that after you have changed any of the files, you must restart FontCreator for the changes to have effect.
