    Thanks, Gary.

    Did you draw the popcorn?
    If so, what was your technique?

    Sorry to say, no, is not my work, Ron. There's a place online called PixelSquid, and they offer that an exceptionally large, diverse catalog of photorealistic rendered models, from just about any angle.

    They are not free. But there are severla that they let you have for free, a limited scopeófair enough.

    I just got to taking screen snags at same size and then using them as signatures here.

    I think if I can find a model I think they'd show, it might be worth a buck or two. In the meanwhile, I can appreciate someone else's work. Nice lighting and textures, I must say. When I first discovered this place, I'd swear this was photography!

    I'm trying to enter Cree Syllabics into Photo and Graphics editor and it appears as boxes... Anyone have any ideas ?

    I think you will need to either reconfigure your keyboard to enter the characters, or use a combination of keys per character on a querty setup..

    I switched to the Cree keyboard and it still comes up as boxes in Xara (it works in LibreOffice). Is there a setting that I need to change in Xara ?

    if it works in other programs but nor xara then I guess you need a real expert in xara fonts like Gare to come along - all I know is that xara does not [always] play well with extended character sets

    If the glyphs appear in one program, and not in Xara, well...

    the answer is academic.

    Well, I could take the glyphs out of the existing typeface and force it to word in Xara. No big magic trick: FontLab and or Font Forge.



    bjcrus.ttf, correct?

    Because Xara cannot/won't give access to characters over 256 in Latin ISO, I will have to build you a new font.

    If that's not what you can work with, I'm stumped.

    A few hours of work ahead (damn, I do love a challenge:)!), but if the answer is "yes", I should have a new non-Cyrillic font by tomorrow.

    Snagged it and set it up in FL.

    Very cool !

    Would be very grateful if you could do that... I'm working on a project for a Sovereign clan mother of the Eagle Clan... sort of like what queen Elizabeth is pretending to be - but this lady is the real deal.

    She will be very grateful too

    In fact - I will give you a credit in every passport I print for her clan members... these passports will be receiving international press, because what we are doing has never been done (as far as I know)
