You can export SVGs from any vector software like Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape or Sketch. File > Save As > SVG
Sure! Just drag the SVG font over one of the grid tiles and we'll do the rest.
Note: This feature is in beta, please email email@example.com if you are having a problem and include the font in your email.
To install and use your font, download the font using the "download" button. Unzip and open the downloaded file. In the "fonts" folder you will find a file with a .ttf extension. Double clicking the font will install it on your computer. To use it on the web, consult the developer FAQ coming soon.
Fonts can contain a large number of icons at a much smaller filesize.The icons are fully scalable and fully editable by developers (color, size, weight).
To create your own fonts! Glyphter allows you to take SVG files and map them to a character grid. You can then output and use your font anywhere.
An SVG is a Scalable Vector Graphic. Unlike pixel based graphics, SVGs can be scaled infinitely.
Click the floppy disk icon in the navigation bar to save your font. If you are not logged in, you will be prompted you to do so.
Click in the text field in the navigation bar with the placeholder text 'Untitled Font'. Enter the name of your font and click save.
The different folders host files necessary to host and use your font on the web. If you only want to use the font on your machine you can install the font by opening the .ttf file.
These are optional superuser settings that change the general appearance of your outputted font (alignment, etc). You can also change the class prefix for use on the web.
Simply drag icons from the shelf and drop them onto the grid to map them to characters in your font. You can change the icon selection using the side arrows in the shelf or click the menu icon to browse all icon sets. The search entry allows you to easily find icons.
This shelf allows you to assign a CSS class name for use on the web. It also allows you to edit glyph paths on the fly. Click the path in the shelf to select it, then use the tool buttons to move it around, scale it, delete it etc. (more details coming soon)
Glyphter started as a fun weekend project and has turned into a tool that lots of people use for their jobs and for fun. Premium membership helps support the continued development of Glyphter.
Glyphter premium members get multiple projects, unlimited grids, and faster replies to support emails (although we try to reply quickly to everyone)!
Nope. As long as a project has been created, it can still be accessed. We won't hold your content hostage like some other sites do.
We're planning on adding multiple languages, hosting of fonts, WOFF2 support, and more. If you have feature ideas, send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just click one of the premium buttons (at the end of the grid or when you're logged in, at the top of your project list).
If you wish to cancel your premium subscription, the Gopher will shed a tiny tear. If this isn't enough to guilt trip you into staying, just click here. Your premium access will remain in effect until the end of the current billing period.
