BitFonter is unique bitmap font editor which can do anything with any bitmap font in any format. First it is a bitmap fonts converter: it opens all known bitmap font format files: Mac OS, Windows, bitmap TrueType, HP Soft Font and even Palm! Mac OS font suitcase management, Unicode encoding, grayscale and color fonts all are supported. Second it is a professional bitmap font editor: you can create new fonts or adjust existing ones using 14 editing tools, more than 20 filters and conversion options that are controlled by an industry-standard user interface. Work in black-white, grayscale or full-color mode. Third, it's a font rasterizer: convert any system font into a bitmap for safe trial distribution. Fourth, it's a font tracer: in just a few minutes you can convert any bitmap font or just a picture of the font (color pictures taken by a digital camera are supported!) into outline font format. *Our TypeTool or FontLab program must be installed on the same computer to accept the outline font data. And last, but not least, there is support for full-color, partially-transparent PhotoFonts! BitFonter has a full set of image-editing tools, effect filters and image mode converters.
What's new in version 3.0
BitFonter 3 boasts a completely redesigned user interface: with the all-new brushes panel, the tools options panel and the new selection modes, users familiar with Adobe Photoshop and similar image-editing applications will feel at home instantly, while the font window, the metrics window and the font info dialog were redesigned with FontLab Studio and TypeTool users in mind. BitFonter can create and edit multilingual and Asian fonts with thousands of glyphs.
