I'm considering buying BitFonter for the studio I work for, which does mostly print. (Yes, really.) I downloaded the demo to see if I could 1. learn to make raster fonts straight from scans, no outlines (for a distressed look) and 2. get them to work in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.
I can use the demo internally, but not even the manual tells me how to save it in a format that works. I saved as ttf, but the characters I added in the character map don't show up outside of the bfb file.
Is this because I have the demo? How can I tell that the real thing would work before buying it?
