I have been able to test HQModern in all Office products, Photoshop Elements 7, Photoshop CS2 and Inkscape. All four react properly to it.

Nice.

Apparently, I need Photoshop Elements 8 (or ideally 9) in order to use it on Win7Pro64.

Anyone able to try it on those programs?

A quick check against the trial version of Photoshop Elements 9 shows that all of HQModern's custom glyphs react properly to the program.

No need to reduce the white die. I think he's just a little bit more clear... say readable, when he has single black lines in the center area.
Only if it doesn't break you!

I remember i did it in one of the Font tools on the ITC Clearface font you were providing (Did i, or did i find it? I think i did it). Somehow i wasn't able to add any other new symbol afterwards.

Ah, gotcha. I went ahead and altered the icon; the three visible faces on the white ISO die are now connected.

...It took a little longer than I thought it would, but I suppose that's OK.

(dropbox update makes the world go round. gonna stop linking to the same file in every post; i think you guys get it by now)

HQModern works in OpenOffice Writer, too, for anyone interested.

Took a punt, and I can now confirm this works on PS Elements 10.
