I can’t find the font I am looking for.We publish new fonts, we revise current ones, and occasionally we will also remove some. For example, in 2023, we retired our manually hinted TrueType fonts, which we originally created for Windows XP rasterisers. In 2019, we stopped using the Std/Pro font suffixes, and replaced them by descriptive suffixes[https://www.typotheque.com/blog/standardised_language_script_suffixes], indicating language support. L suffix replaced Std, and LCG replaced the Pro suffix. Below is a list of fonts that we have modified, and which font we recommend is used instead. Fedra Mono Screen → Retired.

How can I access special characters and symbols inside your fonts?Design applications such as Adobe InDesign and Illustrator offer an option to view the glyphs pallet, and manually select the symbols you need. Text editors, such as Apple Pages, don’t come with such options, and in this case you would need to type the character you need directly. Go to a specific font presentation page to view the glyphs the fonts contain, and when you find the character you need, you can copy and paste it, if it has a Unicode code point.
