Subject:Possibly strange Apple question
Time:08:49 pm
Is there a font that includes the logos used on Apple keyboards (the various command keys, speaker symbols, eject, etc.)?

I've tried googling this but I keep ending up with ways of producing symbol characters such as Dingbats and non-english language characters by Apple key combinations, which is not what I want.

I ask because I've had worn out and missing keys a few times, and while finding a key that fits in the right place is usually possible, painting on the logo is a total pain. But I have a label printer and black and white (on transparent background) label tapes, so it should be possible to label them instead.

Option key:

Unicode #2318 for the command key.


The apple logo is tricksy many Mac font's apparently ( http://hea-www.harvard.edu/~fine/OSX/unicode_apple_logo.html ) have it at #F8FF but that is in the private use area - so specific to individual fonts or OSs.


The apple symbol is though apparently in "Baskerville old face" ( source: http://www.trickyways.com/2015/03/type-apple-logo-symbol-windows/ )

Unfortunately the label software is rather primitive, I think originally intended for Windows 95, I don't think it'll support unicode though I'll give it a try tonight. I was hoping someone had put together a Truetype font that included the characters; for example, I sometimes use a hazard font that has all of the safety and hazard signs including acids and alkalis, slippery floors, lasers, etc. all on keyboard or shift keyboard letters.
