    Post Font Modification?

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anyone here is handy with modifying true type fonts?

    I have one I want to use for some stuff, but it is missing both "w" and "W", they just aren't part of the font for some reason.

    I tried using FontCreator but I am just all thumbs at it.

    My hope is that someone here can help me or is an old pro at this.

    Thanks in advance

    Does it have an 'M'? You could just flip it over (at least for the capital)...

    It does have an "M" but I need it to be usable in word documents, hence the need to modify the font, not just rasterize it and flip it

    Usually fonts missing letter are demo fonts... check the font information and it probably will indicate the foundry selling it.

    Not this one, this is a free font that was made to match the characters in the Voynich Manuscript and it just doesn't have those two characters.

    I want to use it as a lost language in my games and just hand the players papers that are actually english in that font, so when they translate it I can change the font.

    Unfortunately my attempts to add the Ws have fail due to my spectacular lack of understanding the fontCreator software

    I just installed that Font thingamajig this morning but have not yet tried it out. Once I try it I'll let ya know if I can use it or if I am confused too.

    Oh and for those who are interested, this is the font I am talking about.

    W can be "made" by sticking two V characters together (or U if you want to take the name of the character literally). If you have inter-character spacing available, set the spacing on the right-hand one slightly negative until they overlap. Or select words without the missing character(s).

    Could you maybe substitute something similar in its place? There are a few others that I know of that are similar: Malachim, Alphabet of the Magi, RK Meroitic are free; Chaldean, Uvezich, and Kathasa you can buy at The Scriptorium; and Fontica has a bunch of weird looking foreign things.
