  • Can you please attach a capture of what your Windows Font Viewer is showing? What version of Windows are you using?

    Windows XP is showing me something which is not too different than Windows XP's font viewer (assuming that font viewer is what you get when you double-click on the TTF file) is except that the Windows XP version is truncating off the top of the font and is showing multiple sizes rather than just one.

    Why only show string "MENU"?

     
  • So your capture is out of the Windows font installer? I just double-clicked on the font file under Windows XP and only see the text "MENU", similar to GraphicsMagick.

    Perhaps this font requires UTF-8 or Unicode and different/extended inputs to produce the right output?

    GraphicsMagick only tries using a range of ASCII characters as input. In some fonts, this range may be useless.

  • GraphicsMagick does not provide special "dingbats" preview support or support for extended character sets. It is only provides a reasonable preview for fonts supporting plain ASCII text. I do not plan to change this.
