How to add symbol character to Catia V4 font?


New member
Hi Everybody,

Does anyone knows how to add a unicode character to a Catia V4 font? I have SYM1.font set for corporate templates in drawings, which is a Catia V4 font. It does not contain the Unicode character U+2394 (it is a hexagon white black outline with no filling.) (I searched the fonts that include this character, but SYM1 is not among them. see this link:

I found the source file of this font, but I do not know the method to edit it and add a new character. It is a .font file.

Thanks for any help!
