(a post by Freed Schmitter, from our previous Q&A forum)
FontLab has acquired Altsys/Macromedia Fontographer some time ago. This means that they have succeeded in further developping this type design software that was abandoned by Adobe. It would be interesting to find out how they negotiated, and with whom. Furthermore, I read that Fontographer 5.0 still imports Freehand files. Their website www.fontlab.com
- IMPROVED! Copy-paste and import-export of Illustrator and Freehand outline artwork.
A cooperation with FontLab or combining forces might be a possible way to advance the FreeFreehand cause?
Q and A found there:
“What was the first Bézier drawing program for Macintosh computers? No, it wasn't Illustrator. Nor was it FreeHand. The answer is Fontographer.”
