Since Windows screens are getting bigger and bigger, Microsoft forgot to migrate his nice "Charmap" for larger screens. Therefore symbols will be very small on large screens.
There is a little tool called NexusFont that can do a really goog job for you.
|NexusFont - CharMap|
The NexusFont tool
comes with a font manager where you can inspect any font to be opened with the CharMap.
|NexusFont - Explorer|
To be able to select the font you have to download the "SAP-icons.ttf" font and install it to your windows system (Context Menu -> Install). The linked font is part of the SAP OpenUI5 SDK and located in "/resources/sap/ui/core/themes/base/fonts/SAP-icons.ttf".
A more semantically view of the included font is shown in the Icon Explorer example app.

Using NexusFont you can easily pick you favorite font symbol and copy it to the clipboard. Using tools like Microsoft Word or Powerpoint you can quickly paste the symbol into any textelement.
Fonts are a vector representation of images instead of binaries like GIF, JPEG or PNG. This means that they are able to be sized to any dimension without the loss of quality. They even do not have a special color, so you can select any color you want (use all the transformations that are available for texts).
Hope you will enjoy it.
Happy Holidays and hopefully see you next year again.
P.S. If you are using the SAP Fiori LaunchPad, there is an additional font "sap-launch-icons.ttf" which contains 333 icons used for application launch tiles.
