How to select only the characters I want from a source?


I'd like to decrease the disk's font size so the page loads faster. It is the font of Awesome Font icons. I want to know if there is any tool so I can remove the characters I do not use and leave the font "leaner."

For example, if I only use the social networking icons, can I remove all the other icons from the source so that only the ones I use are left, and thus lighter the file being uploaded by the client?

The allows you to select characters and generate a new font from them easily.


In addition to the .ttf format, it will export in .eot, .svg, and .woff.

What you are looking for should be, in my opinion, the IcoMoon . :)

In IcoMoon, you can choose which icons you need or even import into the site (or browse the site's gallery) and later download the new font-style .

You can also change the class of each icons to your preference (but the default value is that of the original source).

I hope it's a good help!
