    Ok, basically i am trying to recreate one of my old designs, and wanted to have some of those scripty looking things in the design. I am however, not able to find them anywhere do to the fact i do not know what they are called.

    Does anyone know where i can download some, or if they are part of a Font? Here is a picture of what i am talking about:

    They're usually known as (printer's) ornaments and yes, there are a quite a few collections out there. Have a rummage through Google.

    Also known to be referred to by some as "dingbats".

    More than likely, you've already got one set; Zapf Dingbats. Possibly more if you've ever landed free fonts with some Adobe application or other; Woodtype Ornaments 1 and 2.

    Technically, dingbats are different, but I'm not going to argue the point. :)

    Heh heh... That's why I used the discrete "referred to by some". I didn't want to let my type geek off his leash. :D

    If you already created them, why not create them again?
