In this instructable I will show you how to make custom characters with an application built into Windows. Yeah and stuff.

Beware of the pics that are made in paint. They can be scary.

Step 1: Stuffs you'll be needing.

You'll need a computer.

You'll also need this thing called Windows.

what does linking with fonts mean?<br>
If you link it with all fonts does it replace the fonts with the font you made all the time?
This is so cool five stars

your welcome but keep in mind you cant use it in the brower. but in word documents you should be able too.
so, can you past pics that you drew and scanned into your pc into the font proccesor thingy?
instead of going through all that you could just type alt+r and then type in eudcedit into the run input box
lazy way ;)
or you could use that handy tool called... drum roll please... SEARCH
which takes longer than alt r. but I like your avatar, at least.
but...but...but then you wouldn't get to follow the cool map....
yeah..... cool map is cool.
Yay!!! I shot my first letter!!!

Please excuse my bad English im only 14 years old and from Austria (we have NO kangurus in here and we speak german) Good instructable ! How did you find out about that ? Is it possible to create bigger Letters (with more Pixel) ?
umm i dont think but you could try resizing your font in like word or something to see if it gets bigger.
how do you delete a font that you've created?
dunno. it maybe in the fonts folder in the control panel but im not sure.
i like your girly font

Great Instructable, grlyfont. How well does the character transfer between machines? That is, will it appear to people who receive email documents or openoffice documents on a another computer as it appears on your own?
um i really dont know? i tried pasting it into a a brower and it came up as a ?. maybe it will work in a word document or something. if you wanna try it out and report back that would be cool :)
The person recieving a document needs to font installed. Some programs offer font inclusion or converting fonts to curves to avoid problems.
thanks for the info schorhr

Good instructable, I like your style.

To save some time (instead of digging through the folders), you can just type the program name in the run dialog (Windows Key+R).
Yes but that takes away from the mission you are on to track down the app ;)
