    Be advised….

    If you install Linotype font explorer… and find out you don’t like it (which I didn’t because it appropriated all of my non-standard fonts.. ie, anything that was not a system font), you will spend the next 40 minutes uninstalling it….. as the application must reapply all of your fonts that it approprated… andif you have a considerable number of fonts, it could take longer.

    The *IDEA* is nice… and thank god it will return your fonts to your control after you uninstall it… but it will take a considerable long time.

    Hi
    its very impressive forum. Congratulations.
    im trying to find some help in font design/customization..
    When i started to sue a mac in 1987 fonts very very vew and screens small so i patched myself together a font in Fontographer in 1988 which contained 52 different signes. it allowed me to see a lot of data on a small screen at one glance. believe it or not, this font worked until oSX10.3.9. In ols good times i could even see it in Excel5.0 in the formula bar window, and use it as Finder font in OS 9.2.2. meanwhile everthing became “better” and I canot use my bitmap font anymore. Desperately looking for someone to transfer that font into outline so that i can still be backwords compatible with 22’000 documents which my office created using that font in the last 19 years. Can someone help? i pay anything (if thats the word for someone with a small budget)
    Please help an mac oldie…
    mkcrz@tiscalinet.ch or mkcrz@vtxmail.ch
    thanks

    Thanks for this glorious article. Yet another thing to mention is that most digital cameras are available equipped with some sort of zoom lens so that more or less of any scene to generally be included by way of ‘zooming’ in and out. These types of changes in focusing length tend to be reflected inside viewfinder and on massive display screen on the back of this camera.
