I've just stumbled across a strange (proprietary, symbol-) font that gave me a
hard time; I have no idea how to get correct output.
This truetype font has several glyphs that seem to be named "t"
but only one with a unicode mapping/position. See the table below on
how three different applications show the name of this glyph (and the unicode
mapping of that glyph).
FontForge | ttf2afm | FontLab | position/mapping
't' | 't' | 't.002' | U+0074 <----- I want this one
'glyph30' | 't' | 't.001' | ? <----- I get this one :(
'glyph37' | 't' | 't' | ?
When I try to access this font from pdftex, I can only access the
glyph called 't.001' or 'glyph30' (but I am not totally sure, since
the second and last one look similar), but not the first one as I
Does anybody know how I could access the first glyph? And how can I
check if this is a valid font? Can truetype fonts have the same name
for several glyphs? This is a font from sigmaker.
