what can you do in BitFonter demo?
« on: 2013-06-20, 21:10:03 »
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?

I'm also seeing that your webpage offers Photofont start for Adobe's CS4 and below... I have CS5. I take it this means I should not be buying this product?

Photofont start should work with CS5 as well. It is free for download so you can try using it before buying BitFonter.
