Fontographer 4.7 for OS X

Fontlab today released , the first Mac OS X-compatible version of the popular font editor. In addition, it also adds support for the Euro character, updated encodings, and copy-paste compatibility with new Illustrator and Freehand versions--along with numerous bug fixes. The company says that Fontographer fills the gap between its beginner and advanced products: it is designed as a "font editor for graphic designers and desktop publishers, powerful enough for real-world typography but without the learning curve of our high-end products." Users can expand existing fonts to include fractions, symbols, foreign characters, and logos in Type 1, Type 3, and TrueType fonts as well as create an entire typeface--for both Windows and Mac--from scratch. Fontographer 4.7 is available for Mac OS X only for $350, while upgrades from v4.x are $100.
