    Question Installing Fonts
    Hi to all,

    I just installed a new font by using the Font-Book application. The font is visible in the Font-Book applications, and I can select it in applications like Word and Pages but in these applications the look completely different. After installing the font, I rebooted the system this did not help

    The font only contains A and B and thay are outside the range of characters with keyboard mappings

    Thanks, Indeed, the set only contains A & B (it's used to make a company logo).
    How can I see the keyboard <> Font mapping ?

    What do you mean with " try pasting in this "

    Those 4 squares are the characters in the font, you cannot see them on a keyboard mapping because they are outside the unicode set, they have been put in what's called a private space

    If you copy those squares into a document, and change the font to ABB the Glyphs will suddenly appear

    Yep, it works ! Thanks for the hint.

    Btw is it possible to map the characters to a place inside the unicode set ?
