I used the description here to serialize Roboto Sans (http://www.juce.com/forum/topic/example-code-creating-using-custom-typeface) on Mac 10.10 for use cross platform.
We are using password characters for some TextEditors:
- 0x2022 (bullet) for ios and linux.
- 0x25cf (splodge) for anything else.
Neither are now visible. If I set the password character to 0x0061 (a) it works as expected, with lower case 'a's printed in the field.
Bullet is definitely in the font on the mac (I can see it in Font Book).
Am I doing something wrong or do serialised fonts strip some symbols or something? My serialized font is here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31415341/fonts__robotosans.
