Fonts Programs

Font Creator Program
The Font Creator Program puts font creation within the grasp of the average PC user, would-be typographers and graphic designers. With this application you can create and edit TrueType font files. You can use the modified fonts in Windows 3.11 and higher. Features include the ability to convert (scanned) bitmaps (.bmp files) to TrueType outlines, thus enabling you to create your own signature, logo and handwriting. In addition, unlimited undo and redo and repeat options are available. The modified fonts can be saved and then used in popular word processing and illustration programs.

Font FX Express
Font FX Express is the easiest way to create 3D text and animations that slap people in the face. Based on the 'You Type, It Tweaks' technology, this Boy-Wonder renders as you type for effortless 3D text effects. Not an artist? No problem, pre-fab creativity is included as a standard feature.

Font Lab
Very expensive, very excellent font tool. If you are going to go pro this might be the font tool of choice.

Macromedia Fontographer
Fontographer has all the tools to make type manipulation easy for both beginners and professionals. It's easy to add fractions, special symbols, foreign characters, even logos to all your favorite fonts. Print key maps of all your fonts and keep customizations at your fingertips. This program is only slightly less expensive then Font Lab.

Dave Emmett's Softy Support Page
Softy allows you to create and update TrueType and bitmap fonts. It runs under Windows (3.1, 95, 98, NT), and requires a 386 or better. Supported bitmap font formats are at present Windows FON and FNT, and LaserJet SFP and SFL soft fonts.

The Handy Pilot Font Editor (FE)
The Handy Pilot Font Editor (FE) is a bitmap font designing program for the Palm (tm) connected organizers. FE allows you to design your own fonts for the PalmOS operation system, use system fonts as a font template, modify and store them to the Palm device memory. All saved fonts can be transfered to and from the desktop computer by HotSync synchronization.

fontedit.exe - Pilot Font Editor; GetFonts.prc - utility for downloading system fonts; FontHack123.prc - substitute your own fonts instead of systems ones.

Microsoft Font properties editor
Microsoft's free Font properties extension lets Windows users learn more about their fonts. The extension provides access to text entries stored within TrueType and OpenType TM fonts. Because type designers can not easily edit these entries we have created the font properties editor.
