How to Open Font Special Characters / Glyphs in Cricut Design Space with a PC

Open a new project in Cricut Design Space.

Click Text.


Click on the font name drop down menu and choose your font. We are using the Dreamland Swirl Font, which includes those extra swirls and curls to add at the end of your text.

Type in your text. I have typed in the word family and would like to add swirls to the beginning and end of my word.


Open Character Map on your PC.  


Use the drop down menu to choose Dreamland Swirl Font.

Navigate to the character and double click on it. This will place it into the box below that says Characters to copy. 

Return to Cricut Design Space and select the text.

Place the cursor where you'd like the shape to be and paste it (CTRL + V).



Return to Character Map and repeat steps to add the remaining characters. 


Quick tip: If you need to adjust the spacing between your characters, you can ungroup your text and move them around!
