Gotcha! Thanks for sharing. Works like a charm.

How do I make the font appear in my browser as well? Any simpler way to substitute an existing keyboard button to insert the new Rupee symbol?

Try renaming the extension manually by deleting the ".pdf" part and leaving it as ".ttf" only - just an exercise.

>>> Downloaded and saved it after renaming as a .pdf file. Won't open , the reason is " it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged.."
