I just purchased two copies of Scan hand. How long until I should expect it to arrive? Should I download the trial copy until it arrives? Does the trial copy come with an uninstaller?

I haven't purchased any products online, so I may have misunderstood, but I presume that you will receive registration keys by email in a few days just as soon as your order has been processed. Just download ScanahandSetup.exe, install it, and start playing with it. The trial version doesn't save fonts, but you can start learning how to use it. Once you get your registration keys you will be able to save your fonts.

Scan Hand limitations/Paste on Template

Postby Radioflyer » Mon Jul 14, 2008 11:53 pm

I did that register thing. Worked out fine.

There doesn't seem to be more features now in the program than before registering. It seems that all that is possible is the basic scan template page feature where you print out the template draw on the paper,scan and then process in in Scan hand and noting else can be done.

I need to be able to load already drawn bitmap character images onto positions on the Template in Step 01.

I have a lot of special Alphabet charactors that I've already created long ago on Bitmap pages so the scanning should be unessary.

Also I'll need to alter or replace characters on already existing Fonts.

You can now save fonts. I would say that is a significant extra feature.

That's about all that it does. The free trials of all High-Logic programs are the full programs — FontCreator free trial is the full Professional edition, the Home edition has fewer features if you register for the cheaper option.

It is not difficult to do — just cut and paste in a bitmap editor like IrfanView.

For that you will need FontCreator.
