Fontographer 4.7 Supports Mac OS X

Fontographer 4.7 Supports Mac OS X

by , 8:20 AM EST, December 2nd, 2005

Fontlab's Fontographer 4.7, released on Monday, finally supports Mac OS X. The professional font design application also resolves several bug fixes, supports the Euro character, supports copy and paste compatibility with Freehand and Illustrator, and more.

Macromedia purchased Fontographer and released the final update, version 4.1.4, in 1996. The product, which only ran in Mac OS 8 and 9, has since collected dust on Macromedia's shelf, falling behind other font creation tools. Fontlab licensed it in May of 2005, and has since been working to update the application to run natively in Mac OS X.

Fontographer 4.7 is priced at US$349, with upgrades from any 4.x version costing $99.
