You can create your own font and one symbol can be your logo, recycling symbol etc.

I was able to create a symbol by defining it in drafting with the define command, but my symbol does not even save in my symbols folder location... the folder is empty.

So.

I have downloaded Recycling logo from web and insert it into NX.

 I create few lines, sorry, not so detailed - you can do it more detailed.

I create my own FNT file and compile it with ugfontc.exe into FNX

Restart NX

Insert my own symbol and Engrave it. See a video (open archive). I dont know why I cannot select one symbol for engraving, not so important.

Good Luck!

Good idea! I think you add new symbol to futura font, instead "A"?
