Okay, I don't know about the rest of you, but I got tired of sorting through the different font sets to find the "dingbat" characters I wanted to use. So I decided to combine characters I use often into one font set.

So here it is: http://xlobbystuff.googlepages.com/Marb ... ection.ttf
Just place this into your Windows/Font directory.

It is a combination of characters from the following font groups:
Xlobbydings - Colby's collection found with various skins
HTPC - Buddabing's collection found with various skins
Webdings - Microsoft default
Wingdings 1/2/3 - Microsoft default
Arial - Microsoft default
Buttons and Switches - found at dafont.com
Famous Logos - found at dafont.com
Illustrate IT - found at dafont.com
Kamera Dings - found at dafont.com
Weather - found at dafont.com
Bonohadavision - found at dafont.com

And I also developed a few of my own and included them (webcam, shutdown, restart, standby, musicovery, youtube, etc). This is just dingbat type font character, and not text.

By no means am I taking credit for all the characters, and I encourage all to download and use those fonts listed above as there are plenty of more characters that I have not included in my group. These are ones that I seem to have used the most in my skin development.

Oh, and I've been using this piece of software called "Font Creator" by High-Logic. It gives you a 30-day trial.

Enjoy!

Added a few more dingbat characters to my font group. Most noticably I added the HD, HDTV, HD DVD (for the small percentage that may need it), and Blu-Ray logos.

Download from link in recent post above. If you have already installed this font group, you will first have to delete this group from the windows/font directory then paste the newly downloaded version.

Have fun.

One more update. I've used up the majority of user slots. Link to download is in the post above. Added a few more ding's that I've created. If you have installed the font file already, before updating, you will need to delete the file in the Windows/Font directory, then copy and paste this updated file into that directory.

Have fun.
