How to Open Special Characters and Font Glyphs in Cricut Design Space

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.
