Using Graphic Symbols Fonts

The Windows True Type Symbol Font MARVOSYM.TTF is a valuable addition for DEX. It contains often-needed but rarely available symbols as the CE Symbol, Fax Machine, Answering Machine, Cellular Phone, Steel Profile Symbols, the original Euro Currency Symbol and lots more.

These are ideal for symbols to place on your PCB silkscreens or copper layers as well as in your schematic. These symbols will output to Gerber files.

NOTE: You must install this font on all machines you wish to view designs using this font. There are not needed once you generate Gerber files as the symbols are converted to Gerber commands.
