How to Fix Broken Font Icons in Chrome 32 for Entypo in Gumby Framework

Newly released Chrome 32 came with the unfortunate side effect of breaking the Entypo font for Windows 8.1 machines. Here's the fix.

Gumby is my new favorite front end solution because it combines a bunch of commonly used plug and play javascript components with a use-only-what-you-need SASS framework that utilizes Compass. One of the great features of Gumby is its incorporation of Entypo, a “popular pictogram suite” that makes serving retina-friendly icons super easy.

Newly released Chrome 32 came with the unfortunate side effect of breaking the Entypo font for Windows 8.1 machines. After a little discussion on the Gumby Framework forum, Justin Yonk¬†revealed that Entypo is working on a fix for the font, as something’s changed in Chrome that’s shifted the unicode positioning of the glyphs.

Well, following his instructions, I have a fix for you in the meantime: here are all the Entypo characters remapped for Chrome 32. You can replace your _entypo.scss file in your Gumby build with this file, and everything will work again. Be sure to download a new copy of the Entypo font files from icomoon.io as well (or you can be lazy and just download a zip from me.)

You’re welcome.

    I just wanted to take a quick second to say thanks for posting this. It’s a very unique problem and I appreciate you posting a fix. I’m the only one in my office with a windows machine, so it was baffling me.

      I hear ya, I spent an unhealthy amount of time trying to figure this out myself. Shout out to the Gumby community for getting us on the right track.

    Great find! Teh only issue is that now the icons are ‘off’ when you put them next to text. Previously they were perfectly centered on the line with text, but now they appear too high …

      Hmm, I haven’t experienced that and I’ve used it in several sites. Can you show me an example? I have a feeling it has to do with your implementation.
