A template file is provided to help you identify key characters. It can also be helpful to test proof a font you have already created (to make sure it is not missing any specific character).

The first character set covers major Western European Latin languages plus a few others (it covers most of the Adobe Latin 1 set): Afrikaans, Basque, Breton, Catalan (without the l-dot), Danish, Dutch, English, Faroese, Finnish, French, Gaelic, German, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Javanese (Latin), Malay (Latin), Norwegian, Portuguese, Sami (Southern), Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, and Walloon.

An additional page adds support for major Cyrillic-based languages: Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbian, and Ukrainian.

You can load this Font Template from the top-right drawer icon.

Customizing the template

  1. Unlock the layer named Characters (template) and select all objects.

  2. Change Opacity to 100% to ensure they show up entirely. 

  3. Apply your custom font using the Character Panel.

  4. And uncheck the Template option from the Layer options if you want to print it.

You can of course also rename all characters and customize the specimen to fit your specific needs (and shoot us a message so we can hear about the custom templates or specimen you need).
