    Default The Font Thing

    Can anyone tell me how I'm able to make use of the characters which are NOT associated with keyboard strokes...!!!***!!!

    Am I making sense...???

    On the attached image you'll see that the top symbols are associated to keys on my keyboard but from '127' onwards they are not.

    How can I use these symbols within my software....

    ANY help would be appreciated.

    Cool

    Hi

    These are extended character sets. You need to try this:
    • Open a journal or caption box
    • Select appropriate font, eg Fish in the Bathroom
    • Hold down Alt key, keep it pressed down
    • While holding it down, type in zero, then the number
    for example:

    Alt + 0140

    Cool

    I love being in the 'shire'. I'm not a native but my husband is. I lived in Norfolk much of my adult life - hated it, never felt settled. When I moved here it was like coming home. The only thing I miss is the sea, but you can't have everything. I sure don't miss the road system.

    Happy scrapping - FS xx

    Mary, any character that you need that is not included in the normal keyboard characters can be accessed as you would normally access ASCII characters (Alt+0+character number).

    By the way folks from trial and error - The Font Thing does not work in Vista (Boo hoo - I love this programme and have had to transfer to Nexus).

    Mary what is that font that you have displayed in your screenshot. Looks great
