WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: CustomFONT Manual DISK ID#: 3FNT-02 BOOTABLE?: Bootable CustomFONT is a wonderful font-creation program that has been placed into the PD by Swenson Associates. It will allow the user to create or adapt Apple /// character sets and even has drivers allowing the user to print out the custom-created fonts! CustomFONT allows you to manipulate and customize the letters, numerals and symbols used by your Apple ///. Character "sets" are stored on disk in data files called "fontfiles." The fontfile used by the Apple /// is called "system character set" and is contained in the file named "SOS.DRIVER" on any boot (start-up) diskette like AppleWriter ///, Business Basic, Pascal, Draw On Three and others. In order to use customized fontfiles in an application, you must first use CustomFONT to create the customized fontfile and then use the Apple /// System Utilities to modify your application boot diskette, specifying that a new fontfile is to be used as the "system character set". Fontfile customization is discussed in Chapters 4 though 8, and the Apple /// System Utilities are discussed in Chapter 9. The two steps to using Customized Character Sets: 1) Use CustomFONT to create a customized fontfile and save it to disk. 2) Use the Apple /// System Utilities to install the customized fontfile as the "System Character Set" within the file "SOS.DRIVER" on the appropriate boot disk.
