Android browser missing icon #31

I am using gulp-icon font to create an iconic font i did post an issue with them but they suggested that it was an issue with the ttf creation.

When viewing the icons in an android browser whichever svg icon was in position 3 during the generation will not display (the space where the icon should appear is blank). e.g:

uE003-icon-3.svg --> affected icon

uE003-icon-5.svg --> affected icon

uF003-icon-3.svg --> affected icon

  1. When you remove the affected icon and regenerate, the affected icon is then the next one on
  2. If you manually rename the svg file and update the icon char it will still be whatever one is in position 3
  3. I have tried updating the unicode to be /f.... but it has not solved the issue
  4. This only happens in android 4.2.2 browser using .ttf font

when it is in position 3 as shown above it is also in position 3 in the generated .ttf file. Any help is greatly appreciated......

I have just tried generating a font on using Font Awesome icons and the same issue occurs on the demo page included in the download as shown by the screenshot above (Notice how the search icon is not displaying).

That strange.

  • What hapens if you use WOFF font instead of TTF ? Will it work?
  • What happend on 3-rd position if you create font in another program?

For sure - try latest svg2ttf from master. It was rewritter significantly.
