Within the menu bar of the Font Utility window there is an option labeled Refer. The Refer option allows you to reference a font file different from the one you are editing or creating. The Refer option provides the Reference Font Window, which displays the character set of a font file. You can copy and move individual characters from this window to the Font Utility window to combine and customize characters from different font files within one new file.
When you select Refer, the File Selection Dialog window appears. See the figure for an illustration of the File Selection Dialog window.
Specify the font file to which you want to refer, and click on OK or press the Enter key. The Reference Font window is then displayed. See the figure for an illustration of the Reference Font window. You can now edit the file displayed in the Font Utility window while referring to the file in the Reference Font window. You can also copy and move characters from the Reference Font window into the Font Utility window. This allows you to combine characters from different fonts within one character set.
The Reference Font window consists of a menu bar across the top, a font display area, and a message area. The font display area displays each character within the font file you specified. The message area displays the file name and set of the file you specified. The menu bar has two options: Information and Exit.
The Information option displays the Header Information window for the character set you are referencing. The window that is displayed depends upon the type of font file you are referencing. For examples of the windows displayed, see the figure illustrating the Header Information window for a raster font file and the figure illustrating the Header Information window for a vector font file.
The Exit option has two suboptions: Exit or Cancel. The Exit suboption exits the Reference Font window and returns to the Font Utility window. The Cancel suboption cancels the Exit command and returns to the Reference Font window.
