Looking for a way to find out how to call up (May numbers) each character in the font. I want to print a list of all the glyphs in a font, along with spacing, kerning. All ligatures, chars etc.

That is: the letter 'a' = a number/name that I can use in TeX, left spacing, right spacing, kerning

And next make a TeX document with information.

    \setfont

    \name-TeX-or-number | name/number | pacing, kerning &

  • if the font has a .tfm file, the program tftopl will translate it to "property list" format, which is human readable, if not super-intelligible without a road map. texdoc tftopl for the documentation. it's not obvious to me that this can be used directly to create a tex document that you can use for reference.

  • in xelatex is no .tfm spacing left, and spacing rigth is different than kerning

Use \fonttable. An example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fonttable}
\begin{document}
\section{umranda}
\fonttable{umranda}
\subsection{Usage}
\verb|\font\umranda=umranda \umranda  \char35 --- | \font\umranda=umranda
\umranda  \char35
%
\newpage
\section{umrandb}
\fonttable{umrandb}
\subsection{Usage}
\verb|\font\umrandb=umrandb \umrandb  \char114 --- | \font\umrandb=umrandb
\umrandb  \char114

\end{document}

Another example:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fonttable}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

\fonttable{ptmr7t}

\end{document}

  • Ok this is all glyphs but what with space left, and right (in polish odsadzka) spacing, and kerning?
