FontXChange updated to 1.5
Morrison SoftDesign has released FontXChange 1.5 for Mac OS X. The font-format converter has updated its Unicode support to 5.1 and improved its parsing and rendering tools. The 1.5 update can generate .AFM files, can rebuild a damaged font and has new naming options available. FontXChange converts between OpenType, PostScript Type 1, TrueType for Mac and Windows and many other font-types and it supports font encoding for Adobe Standard, Unicode, Mac Roman and others. It offers a batch processor and a preview window for inspecting fonts.
FontXChange works with Mac OS X 10.3 and higher and has a free demo version available. It costs $100 for a single-user license, or $350 for a site license.
