As a font editing and creation tool, Macromedia's Fontographer 4.1 can go a long way toward creating the myriad fonts digital artists need to accomplish the right look for each project. It provides the ability to create custom fonts, either by freehand drawing, using drawing tools, or by importing images to use as templates.

Macromedia Fontographer is the easiest way to create royalty-free fonts for print, multimedia, and the Internet. Easily expand existing fonts to include fractions, symbols, foreign characters, and logos in Type 1, Type 3, and TrueType fonts; or create an entire typeface from scratch. Fonts created with Fontographer can be used in any program with a font menu on Windows and Macintosh platforms.

The DL above consists of six Disk Copy 4.2 floppy disk image files, in a Disk Copy 6.3 .img container and compressed as ".sit" with StuffIt 3.6 for better backwards compatibility.

Maybe folks with SheepShaver and associated probs should modify/create fonts on Basilisk and moving them later

Sure, you can move/take fonts created with Fontographer elsewhere, and then use them in Sheepshaver.

But this software works fine in SheepShaver if you follow this workaround when installing it:
Perform a "Custom" install of Fontographer and elect to install the 68k "Fontographer 4.1.4 Non-FPU" option.
The Non-FPU version runs well in the SheepShaver environment.

Works great on Basilisk II, I need the € sign and it really looks promising. - Maybe folks with SheepShaver and associated probs should modify/create fonts on Basilisk and moving them later over to SheepShaver?

Removed the old MU link and uploaded the original software to here for archiving.

The installer of this contains versions for 68k Macs, both with and without an FPU, as well as an accelerated PPC version. So perhaps the Compatibility rating "Architecture: PPC" above, can be changed to reflect this.

Well, someone had to do it... I did wait for 6+ months or so...

   I'm having trouble getting this to work in SheepShaver. It starts up fine, but as soon as I open a font, sheepshaver crashes. I've seen other's posting similar problems. Has anyone successfully gotten this to work in SheepShaver?

A workaround to get Fontographer to run on SheepShaver is to perform a "Custom Install" and choose to install the 68k Mac version without FPU support. It performs slower than native, but it is better than not at all.

Fontographer crashes badly if you do the standard install and install the PPC version on SheepSaver.

There is also an option to install a version for 68k Macs with an FPU, it will run too ( if you also install an FPU emulation INIT on your SheepShaver installation), however it runs even slower than the Non FPU 68k version if installed on SheepSaver.

So, Custom Install the No FPU 68k version of Fontographer and you will be able to use this app on SheepShaver.

SheepShaver is still not very stable software. A special working with Mac OS 9.0.4.
In my opinion work more good in Mac OS 8.6

Has anyone successfully gotten this to work in SheepShaver? Any tips on how to solve the problem? Fontographer is a great program and I'd like to be able to salvage the fonts I've created with it.
