Ability to create a custom Glyph
I need to insert in text symbols that appear on products - I have the symbols as an image which can easily be converted into bitmap/eps or whatever is needed in Photoshop.
It would be nice to be able to great a custom Glyph set and create your own library of regularly used symbols - I have about 200 of them from the technical writing I do. Inserting them and getting them to "stay put" is very time consuming and it would-be much easier if they worked just like putting in a symbol from a wingdings font or similar. It would also mean that if you changed font size the glyph would also change.
It's a problem thats becoming more acute for me as more and more buttons on products are becoming symbol only due to globalisation of products is happening (same product to all markets.) A couple of the ones I need regularly are attached. It would also make getting these into a table which is often 14 columns by up to 200 rows with a symbol in each cell so much easier to format and resize to use else where. I regularly work at 8pt for small printed books and 12 pt for ebooks. No matter what you do with hem as graphic they do not scale well.
