Hi guys,

I have the same problem in InDesign&Ilustrator (both CS4) and was wondering, if it were possible to view glyphs as a whole somehow.

When I, for example, use certain script fonts, I never get to see the swashes or anything outside their tiny little glyph box.

After trying to solve my problem in another thread in the Illustrator forums, I came to the conclusion this is impossible in any Adobe software. Is there an external tool that can help me? I'm on a Windows x64 machine

To illustrate my problem:


"O" in glyphs panel vs. reality

scr o.PNG

scr o 2.PNG

alternates for "f" in glyphs panel:

scr f.PNG

All utterly useless, and I use several of such types of fonts constantly. Unbearable. Please help

I'm using several screens, so I don't care about screen estate. I just want to see what I'm doing.

Thanks!

Would you like this moved to the Illustrator or InDesign forum for some more specific help?
