Converting Palm PDB format to TTF format

Diner's picture

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.

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,

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?

BF2 will be available first for Mac and it will come earlier than FontLab Studio 5 (which will be available for Windows first :-).
