Don’t Have an Open Type Font?

But what if you need to make a fraction in a typeface that’s not an Open-Type font? If you type “1/2” and go to the OpenType palette, the fraction button is grayed-out. Instead, click with the Type tool (T) where you want your fraction to appear but don’t type anything, and then open the Glyphs palette (Window>Type>Glyphs). Scroll through the palette to find the figure you need (in this example, a fraction) and double-click on it to add that character. Many fonts will offer the most-used fractions, such as 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4. (Seems obvious once you read it, doesn’t it?) Needless to say, you can use this tip for any text symbols whose keyboard shortcut you can’t remember, such as trademark, copyrights, accents, etc.
