Some sellers use fonts with extra glyphs to allow for more decorative text. You'll usually find these glyphs added to the first character and last character of words or names in a template. You can use extra glyphs in fonts if the font supports it.
What's a glyph?
Glyphs are extra characters that you can use in fonts. These characters can allow you to use accent marks with letters, access other language characters, and even add more decorative letters to use in your fonts.
Take a look at the example below where we access glyphs to add some decorative letters at the beginning and end of the word.
It's important to know that not all fonts have extra glyphs. It completely depends on the creator of the font. The glyphs need to be designed when the font is created.
If the template you purchased uses glyphs in text and you want to keep those glyphs or use other glyphs within the font, keep reading.
How to access glyphs in a font
First, edit the text box:
Accessing glyphs in a font is very simple in Templett. First, select the text box that you want to edit by clicking it twice to put it in editing mode. You'll know it's in editing mode when it's outlined in a green dashed line. Edit the text so it's displays what you want.
Then add the glyph character:
Put the cursor where you want the glyph to appear and select the glyph from the Glyph Panel. The Glyph Panel button is located right next to the font dropdown. See image below:
That's it. When you open the Glyph Panel, you'll see all of the glyphs that the font supports. As you hover over the characters in the Glyph Panel, they will enlarge so you can see them better.
Keep in mind that not all fonts support extra glyphs.
