View a Font's Glyph Set

To view a font's glyph set, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the Glyphs View is selected in the bottom pane.
  2. Select a set in the Sets Sidebar on the left.
  3. Select the font in the top pane of the main window.
  4. Use the controls at the bottom on the Glyphs View to specify character set and font size to display.
