OK, I just submitted a little update to this font. Almost all of the Unicode box drawing characters from the U+2500 block are now available in the Cyrillic block of this font, at U+0400 (their order is the same, just 0x2100 positions earlier in the font). I hope that Fontstruct gets official support for the Unicode code ranges for punctuation, but until then this work-around should be fine for certain purposes.
@Elementalist. Nice! The box drawing range is available in FontStruct now. In expert mode, select "Unicode Letter Sets" from the menu (under "Advanced"). Then take a long scroll up the character set selector.
@meek, I tried that, but the menu will not scroll upward. It might be a trackpad problem on this laptop, a browser/plugin glitch (Chrome on Windows 7, not sure of the Flash version), or possibly a compatibility issue with FontStruct or a UI library FontStruct uses. It did seem odd that the top entry in the list was "Mandaic"...
@Elementalist. You have to use the little arrow at the top to scroll. Keys and scroll-wheel won't work I'm afraid. That select box could do with some work.
OK, box drawing characters are in the correct unicode range now, with complete (!) coverage of the range. I still have them in the Cyrillic block as well, because I don't feel like taking them all out and because I don't intend to implement Cyrillic characters (or any characters with accents; they extend the vertical space required by the font and that works against one of my design goals). @meek, it turns out I needed to tap the trackpad instead of clicking with the mouse button -- I had never encountered this trackpad bug before, but now I can use FontStruct more effectively. I don't think it is a FontStruct problem.
To save space when distributing the font, I removed the box drawing characters from the Cyrillic range. I also cloned this font and made it shorter -- have a look at Low Rider!
A few months ago, I edited the ampersand, as well as a few other little things. I feel like the new ampersand is a huge improvement.
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
