New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
The dreaded upgrade is here and suddenly all my OS9 fonts are obsolete garbage. Adobe CS came with some nice fonts, but our shop needs so much more.
On a lark, I downloaded Fontlab for OS X and opened a Type 1 font from OS 9. I exported it as OpenType, set some type with it in InDesign, made a PDF, opened it in Acrobat, preflighted it, and printed it to a Postscript Level 2 laser printer. Whoa.
Did that really work? It can't be that easy. Can I batch-process 300 fonts to OpenType with Fontlab and keep production running smoothly? The boss would think I was god if I could pull that one off.
