You can customize Scanahand through the Options window (Select Options from the Tools menu).


On Start...

Shows the Welcome dialog when Scanahand  is started.

Measurement units

Allows you to set the measurement units used for the template margins.

Code-point format

Allows you to set the code-point format as shown on symbol or dingbat templates. This setting also applies to the Code Points values in the Template Editor.


This allows you to increase or decrease the size of the generated font outlines.

Include predefined diacritical marks

This will include predefined diacritical marks in your font if you have not defined them yourself.


Tip: FontCreator can then be used to add many more composite glyphs to your fonts by using the Complete Composites feature, without having to draw them all on the template. This will also ensure greater consistency.
