Using special characters in the Yellow Daisy Font Tutorial

Hey everyone!

I hope you like my new font. Here is a small tutorial on how to use the special characters in the font. It's just basically find, copy and paste. I am on a Mac so those are the only images I could make myself for now.

PC USERS:

OPEN CHARACTER MAP
Open Character Map by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Character Map, and then, in the list of results, click Character Map.

INSERT A SPECIAL CHARACTER INTO A DOCUMENT
  1. Open Character Map by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Character Map, and then, in the list of results, click Character Map.
  2. Click the Font list, and then click the font you want to use.
  3. Click the special character you want to insert into the document.
  4. Click Select, and then click Copy.
  5. Open your document and click the location in the document where you want the special character to appear.
  6. Click the Edit menu, and then click Paste.

Tip

  • Many programs allow you to drag special characters into documents. To do this, click the character you want to copy. When the character appears enlarged, drag it into the open document.

    MAC USERS:
    Make sure you have the font installed before opening your software.
    Open up Font Book.  Click User to see all the fonts you have downloaded and installed onto your computer.  Navigate to Samantha. This is what you'll see right now and you'll probably notice it's missing all the fancy glyphs.

    If you go up to the menu bar and click VIEW and switch from sample to Repertoire, your view will change and you'll have access to the complete font. 


    Now open your program and the easiest way to do this is to copy and paste. Use the scroll bar on the right side of the font book window to find the letter you want to use. Once you find it, click it to make it blue then simply hit COMMAND+C (copy).

    Switch to your chosen program and hit COMMAND+V (paste). Make sure in designer programs like silhouette Studio or Illustrator you have selected your Text/type tool and started your text insert.

    In Silhouette it will look like a red box. Don't Worry.


    Just click on the text style window icon, from the Font Style, scroll down to find Yellow Daisy.
