Scan N Cut Saturday – Accessing Alternate Characters With Character Map

October 13, 2018 — 1 Comment

Many true type fonts come with alternate characters however these are not directly accessible in Canvas Workspace so today’s video shares a quick tip on how to access these using Character Map in conjunction with Canvas Workspace.

Here is an example of different character styles available in one particular font.

Accessing Alternate Characters With Character Map and Canvas Workspace Screen

Inset right you can also see Character Map.

Quick note, this will not be relevant to MAC users. Sorry, this is due to the Canvas Workspace desktop version only being available for Windows users.

Ok, if you don’t already know where Character Map is on your computer, it’s time to find out. Usually, you can find programs by typing them into the Cortana search box. If you are using a Windows version older than Version 10, then it’s also time to update! Character Map is available on all older versions of Windows OS but you’ll probably need to find it via an alternate route.

Ok, once you’ve found that, it’s on with the video!

Hope you found this useful and have learned something new.

Please don’t forget that I have a growing online workshop for Scan N Cut users over at Udemy. Do take a mo to have a look if you haven’t already.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon.
