View Full Version : Using Image maker

05-31-2008, 04:50 AM
I apologise for placing this posting here but I cannot see an alternative forum.

I am trying to use 'Button Maker Online' with non-Latin Fonts, for example Greek, Turkish etc. but the system is responding with 'Error' in the image.

Is there anyway that I can make buttons in non-Latin fonts?

Here is an example of the type of font I am trying to use: Συνεργάτες .

Thank you.

I'm not sure of the exact problem. In FF I get:


But in Opera I get a button with ? marks on it instead of the (Greek? Cyrillic? whatever) text characters.

I think it has something to do with the character set supported for that page by the server. If so, there's not much you or I can do about it. I can set the encoding in Opera, but without knowing the precise charset encoding to use, I can't seem to get it to do anything different, and it might not matter if the server doesn't support it.

It's a pretty easy matter though to make your own button, or you could make a blank button in the button maker and then add your own text in Photo Shop, Paint Shop, or The Gimp.

The tool only supports the two listed fonts right now unfortunately. Like John said, the best solution I can think of now is just to create a blank button using the tool, then overlap it with the text you want shown using PSP or the free Paint.net (http://www.getpaint.net/)
