Fonts With Tails (Glyphs) Cheat Sheet

Glyphs are extra characters in fonts.  For fonts like Samantha you have to use a character map to access the extra swirls. There are a few fonts, such as I Love Glitter, where you can quickly add swirls (nothing as ornate as Samantha, but still pretty!) just by adding a few characters such as * \ [ ] or ().  I call them "easy glyphs".


Cliff Notes:
The first two sections here are just quick easy tails that can be added with either ( ) or [ ].  Below those are four cheat sheets for fonts with additional options and swashes.

Add Tails to these fonts with ( )

Millenial Solstice   KL Cupid   Broken Heart     Shorelines

Add Tails to these fonts with [ ]

I Love Glitter    Sunset Beach    KL Cupid      Lilly Belle

Using the Samantha font is a bit different - but if you learn to use Samantha (which is NOT a free font) you can use the character map for any font.
