Use of a "non-standard" font

There is an instrument being in development. The main difficulty is that the font used in the original device is specific to the original device.

Replace it with one of the "standard" fonts FGFS without sacrificing to authenticity it won't be possible. Therefore interested as it is possible to solve this difficulty.

Do you have access to the original font and want to know how to use it, or do you want to know how to create a font looking like the original font?

Work on the font has only just begun. During the development of the instrument can be put "a non-standard font" in the directory Fonts, but for the final model (as a part of aircraft model) such a variant is not well suited.

You can always put fonts in a 'Fonts' directory inside the directory of the aircraft it is used for.
