MAC Version

Post by carterhouse » Tue Apr 05, 2011 2:28 am

I have faithfully used FontCreator since early... Version 3 maybe? I can't remember the first version I used, but it was before this forum was created! I now keep a Windows PC only for a few select programs like FC. I would like to request that FontCreator (and maintype and scanahand for that matter!) be available in MAC. We have nothing like FontCreator. But once you've experienced painless computing, it is hard to go back. I'll go back for FC/Maintype/Scanahand if I must, but life is so short... Thank you for your consideration.

We are considering this, but not for the near future.

I`ve been using the FontCreator in Windows for a time but now i`m working on a Mac and i knew that was a version for MAC. Why stop to sell the version for MAC? Even a prior version would be enough for me. So, the question remains. Why stop to sell the latest available MAC version? Doesn`t make sense for me.

We never had a Mac version, but there are people who successfully use our software on a Mac.

You can run Windows on a Mac, and use our software there. To run Windows on a Mac use:
Parallels Desktop

Alternatively you can use software that allows you to run Windows software on Mac or Linux. This can be done with:
CrossOver
Wine

If Font Creator ran on the Mac, I'd be using a Mac today!
Buying 'Parallels' increases the cost of Font creator by $80.

Seriously, has anyone tried it on WinOnX? I highly doubt it will work.

I'll be very happy if it does, though. +1 for Mac version, here.

*EDIT*

I just got it to run using Wine -- more specifically, the WineBottler combo (beta): http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/

I could register it and run it just fine, opening, changing and saving fonts.

Right now, I am a very happy camper. :D
