View Full Version : ASCII & Unicode

11 November 2005, 07:31 PM
I am trying to get ascii and unicode to work in photoshop. I was thinking if i can get these characters to work through the text tool I could save myself a lot of work. So far i've hit a brick wall, they just fail to work. I even tried to copy my unicode characters from a web-browser into the system buffer, then try to paste into the text tool, again this doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Hi there, what kind of unicode character are you trying to place ? Carriage return and all that ?

Not sure if you've tried this yet, but whenever I need to use a character that isn't on the keyboard, (if I don't remember the key code for it) I'll use Character Map's copy feature...always works. This is for Windows though, not sure for Mac if that's what you using.

I just want to duplicate the 4 symbols which represent the suits in a deck of cards. I'm not too sure about this Character Map util?

Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map. Or type in "charmap" in the Run command. This is for XP, it might be somewhere else in other versions. Just select what font your using, and scroll down to find your symbol. Double-click it or press the Select button when you find it, and it should be in the clipboard. Then you can just go into Photoshop and paste it in.
