Fontographer 4.7 Supports Mac OS X

Fontlabis 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 Macromediais 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.
