New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This Belgian company, Alt-Soft, has a new software for font edition and conversion, called FTM (Font Type Master). It's a simple app, not really good for drawing or creating new fonts, there's not even a good metrics tool.
But this app has a very, very interesting feature. Maybe I shouldn't post this here, but... it opens fonts from PDFs! Using the demo, I was able to open a font from a PDF file. Quick and easy. No kerning though. I just wasn't able to save the font because it is a demo (no saving allowed).
I will not post a link to this, but I think interested people will find it.
Personally, I think this feature should be removed from this app. But, what do others think about it?
