~ Using A True Type Font ~
Basically on the dingbats every letter is a representative of a image in the dingbat file. Some Dingbats use only UPPER case characters. Some use only lower case. Then there is the rare Ding that uses both UPPER & lower case as well as numeric shift numeric alt & alt shift characters. Unfortunately you never know until you try the ding file out. That is why I, as well as many others appreciate a 'Charset' also called a 'font map' to tell us what the .TTF file has "under the hood" so to speak.

You paste the .ttf url in the text box below the menu of IM's on board fonts. I have it marked for you & the .ttf file already in place.
This is the file you will be using to make the following dingbat images:
