I found a nice social icon set as font: http://www.tajfa.com/projects/rondo/

What I now want is to remove the circular borders around them, but when I open them with Fontlab Studio 5 I only see a blank set. Is there a way to remove it or do you know of alternative sets?

  • Could you please clarify what exactly you want to do, preferably in what software? Do you want to edit the characters and re-save the font as, say, *.otf; or do you just want to create icons (vector / raster) based upon this font? The latter is really easy and is good enough for most applications of social icons.

  • @Bakabaka I want to remove circles around the logos, then use it in my web projects, I tryed to do it with Fontlab, but icons gone, I think Fontlab changed the order of charset, or something like that

  • Can't you simply type out the characters you need in Photoshop, rasterise the text and remove/mask the circle manually? I don't see the need to edit the font file.

    @Bakabaka I want to use it as font, because color, background color, and size of icons will be dynamic, Static sprites are useless for this condition.

  • What steps are you taking to remove the circles? I don't seem to be experiencing the same issue: i.imgur.com/QTjWdJ9.png

The font has a Creative Commons license, so you are authorized to modify it. I don't know why you are having this problem, but if you can't find a solution you can always check one of the other icon sets that work with font-face and don't require you to change the shapes:

  • Finally I got an answer, thank you! fontfabric.com/social-media-icons-pack looks pretty good, and suit to my project. I dont know why I couldnt alter Rondo properly, although I used Fontlab for many fonts. Thank you again.
