This new version of ScanFont acts as a Plug-in for any of FontLab's font editors: TypeTool, Asiafont Studio, or FontLab Studio (sold separately).ScanFont has long been the best tool for turning scans into fonts. Anything that can fit into a scanner can quickly become a TrueType or Type 1 font. Now with the new version 5, do even more even easier and faster!
ScanFont 5 is optimized for scanning glyphs for autotracing into fonts, but it also gives complete control over the scanning and autotrace process. Adjust trace tolerance, curve fit and linearity to suit the subject, thus assuring the cleanest and most accurate scan possible and so that the final font character requires little or no editing.
With its new, improved GUI, new filters, and new tools (such as smart background removal), ScanFont is perfect for making handwriting fonts, symbol fonts, clip art fonts, signature fonts, or any other font from print or bitmap source material.
Mac version: Mac OS X (10.3 or higher recommended). ScanFont 5 will run on Intel-based Mac OS X
