Does anybody knows which font covers these symbols?

Here's a screencap: http://www.su-media.de/symbol.jpg

Any help finding these symbols is highly appreciated!

Hi su-n,

I get the feeling these symbols are not really a font but come from one of those old Letraset transfers. At first look I thought they were part of a special font of the kind some software includes for their particular symbols, like Outlook does. But after going thru the special fonts for a few faxing and organizer programs I started to think maybe not... As far as I can tell from the image you've posted, the image is a scan from an actual organizer, Am I right?

If you need only those three symbols it should be very easy to manually redraw them in Illustrator or CorelDraw and then export them to The Font Creator Program to create a custom font.

Good Vibes!
