I'm producing a menu with xelatex using the font Bickham Script Pro. It has a swirly pattern I'd like to use at the beginning and end of a line. The swirly character would need to be flipped to have the correct end pointing inwards towards the text. Is there a way to do this as I can't find one.

An example for xelatex and lualatex:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmainfont{Bickham Script Pro}

\usepackage{graphicx}
    
\begin{document}
    
    
\reflectbox{Foo}
\end{document}

enter image description here

An example for pdflatex

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\newcommand\script[1]{{\fontfamily{pzc}\fontshape{it}\selectfont#1}}
\begin{document}
\reflectbox{\script{Foo}}
\end{document}

enter image description here

  • fontspec doesn't seem to work with pdflatex, is there an alternative? – Memming May 23 '14 at 19:17

    see my edited answer. There are not a big number of script fonts for pdflatex. – user2478 May 23 '14 at 19:31
