To open special font characters in Cricut Design Space, start by adding some regular text to the canvas.
NOTE: You must pick a font that has special characters or glyphs such as the So Fontsy font which we exclusively offer free with a commercial use license.
Then pull up the “character map” on your computer. You can put this in your computer’s search bar to find it easily.
Pick the font you want from the drop down. Then check the “advanced view” to access the special characters and glyphs. You will see another pop up box.
Scroll until you see “private use characters” and click. You will then see your special characters in the character map.
Click the one you would like to use.
Ensure that the letter is highlighted in the “characters to copy” box then copy.
Paste it into design space over the letter you want to replace. NOTE: This will appear as a box in your text edit window but will look fine on your canvas.
Continue to alter your text until you are happy with it and your design is ready to cut!
