Here's a simple example of the new MEDIA > CHANGE GLYPH... menu item of version 15.

In this example the glyphs of the <, >, * and - characters have been changed into arrows.

Notice that the arrows go with the text. This way you no longer have to create a new vector drawing (EPS) of your logo every time you change the text. This saves a lot of time!

The arrows have been created in Bixelangelo.

Hold down the <Ctrl> key to draw straight lines.

Michiel that's great love it. Can't try it, because we're on a vaaction. But is there a way to create your own, Just with the emoji's?

Filip, of course you can use your own shapes. Vector drawings (EPS) and traced bitmaps are supported.
