A buddy of mine wants to convert a Palm .pdb font into a .ttf font. I'm posting on his behalf to find out if anybody has suggestions. Thanks, Stuart :D
AFAIK out BitFonter can open and save Palm fonts. In the same time it can open and save bitmap-only TrueType fonts. If autotracing is needed, then BitFonter can do it, but FontLab or TypeTool must be used to export outline TT font. BitFonter 2 will add a bitmap pixel-trace (Flash-style) feature. Best regards, Yuri
Hi Yuri, It looks like Bitfonter 2 will be the essential tool for pixelfont designers. When it will be available, when fonlab 5 launches or before? It will be available for mac or pc first? Best, mh
BF2 will be available first for Mac and it will come earlier than FontLab Studio 5 (which will be available for Windows first :-).
