Shareware

I use three font products from High-Logic that are available as Shareware, and a screen capture utility called FastStone Capture. Shareware typically works with limited functionality for 30-days, after which you need to register the product. It is long enough for a thorough investigation of the available tools and features. A free version of MainType is also available for non-commercial use.

The High-logic forum provides free support for FontCreator, MainType, and Scanahand. Creating and editing TrueType fonts is a complex task, and there are not many TrueType font editors available. The main competitors to FontCreator (FontLab, Fontographer, TypeTool) are either very expensive or difficult to use. FontCreator was developed by Erwin Denissen, who offers direct email support to registered users, though one can find most answers on the forum or in online help.

FastStone produce several excellent freeware graphics products, two of which are reviewed on my Freeware pages. FastStone Image Viewer and FastStone PhotoResizer are both worth checking out.
