Hi Bhikku

I also needed to get MAC versions of my fonts for a colleague to use. I got them professionally converted by a UK firm called Electronic Font Foundary at www.eff.co.uk

If you find a better (cheaper!) solution, please let me know.

This in turn seems to depend on what Platform is selected and what language is set - some combinations do not stay when...

Installing a font

I'm having trouble installing a font in Windows 98. The installation process goes OK but the font appears in my applications as NewUnicodeFont although I have carefully given it a new name and subtype. I'm also confused over what Platform I should set in the Platform Manager. It would seem logical t...

Kerning

When I do a trial of my font, I don't see the kerning that I have applied manually. Is this what I should expect - will the kerning be there when I install the font?

Thanks
