Navigation: The User Interface >
The default layout of Scanahand will look like the image below.
On the Empty Template selection box, you can select a template. You can use the Template Editor to define your own custom templates.
When you've drawn all characters you want to include in your font, put the template as straight as possible on the scanner bed and press the Scan button. Select your scanner and scan the template.
Click on the "Rotate 180 Degrees" toolbar button if you accidentally placed the filled-in template into the scanner, upside-down.
To initiate the font generation process, press the Generate button to open the Font Setup dialog.
During the font generation process, Scanahand detects the template, and places the characters into your font. Upon completion, you instantly get to preview your finished font.
Click the Install button to make the font available to all applications (Microsoft Word, etc.) on your computer.
