Initial Impressions Dear Folks...I did download PopChar, but when I installed it, it requested a license key, or it would remain in trial mode. I assume the key was free, but if something is free I like it unencumbered. I didn't mind the idea of an evaluation so much.The interface wasn't plain and simple enough for me (a small chart with the characters all fitting in a small frame - visible all at once - would have been nice.Vince

works great Had some dfonts from my mac that I needed to use on a PC. Nothing I tried worked very well for converting them, until I found CrossFont. Easy to use, quick results, and it worked great. I didn't explore all of its capabilities, but for what I needed, it was the best out there.

Does what it says! I'm really happy that this software allowed me to convert a Mac font to a PC font. We were otherwise at an impasse on the project - but now: problem solved...

crash bang Tricky one, on my laptop the application refuses to start. On my desktop it starts and works like a charm. Only i didn't find a way to convert bunch of fonts without clicking individually each of them. Seems kind of bore, a normal shift-click or ctr-click select for multiple fonts to convert would rock. Very good application none the less.

CrossFont turned white elepant into a chariot Having recently prurchased Adobe CS2, I was very frustrated to find that either installing my ttf fonts (typefaces) via windowsXP's font installer, or even using extensis suitcase, most of the typeface derivatives/variations did not show. I did have a disk of Mac Type1 fonts, but I couldn't use them either.Doing a web search i came up with Crossfont; almost a last-ditch effort, but found it significantly better value than enything else. Sure, it's not so pretty as others, but it does what it does really well. Now I have a great working system with oodles of Type1 fonts ( ...

Ecellent program I have been using photoshop 7 for a long time and have moved to an intel Mac with OX 5.6 which does not work with this version of photoshop. Rather than upgrade I change to Pixelmator but missed the text styles of photoshop. This program fills that gap and then some. While I have only used it for awhile it seems easy to use with a lot a variations to make anything Pop.

3D FontTwister A good program but wouldn't produce the exact results I wanted.
