For a project of mine I needed the pictograms for man and woman (as also known from toilette doors), in two different sizes, once filled and once as an outline. I coud not find these as a LaTeX symbol nor as a defined unicode character, so I searched the internet. I found some material as vector graphics (EPS), which I was using first, imported into my LaTeX document as images. But it felt wrong to use images for something that’s a symbol in the text.
So I installed fontforge, the apparently usual tool for that, imported the EPS files and with surprisingly reasonable effort created a TrueType font with these nice eight glyphs:
Quite a while ago I wrote here how to use single glyphs from a TrueType font in LaTeX. Based on that I created the neccessary files to use these in LaTex with these commands, in the order of the picture:
Here are the files: ManPictograms.ttf T1ManPictograms.fd ManPictograms.tfm ManPictograms.enc ManPictograms.sty. If anyone feels like turning them into a more proper LaTeX font package, they are welcome.
