dfontifier is an application that can convert Datafork TrueType fonts (.dfonts) into ordinary OS 9-style TrueType fonts and vice versa.

This may be useful when sending jobs to service bureaus that are still in OS 9.

Also, while most current font manager applications can "bridge the gap" between the OS X native and Classic environments by making fonts you've activated available to both environments, they seem to be limited when it comes to data fork-based fonts. For example, your font manager can't make your .dfont fonts available to Classic because Classic doesn't understand how to use them. dfontifier can help more...

What's New

Version 2.0.1:
  • Worked around an AppleScript bug affecting the System Events application within OS X v.10.2.8 specifically, where it would fail to set the file type and creator type of converted fonts, resulting in generic-looking documents rather than usable fonts.
  • A couple of minor user-interface tweaks


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Just a comment not necessarily aimed at the author of the app:

You should never send any print jobs utilizing TrueType fonts to service bureaus. You should use Postscript fonts only.

I can't get this to work, when I drop a .dfont onto the app it gives me an applescript error:

The variable sfnt_ in not defined (-2753)

Using version 2.0.1

cabbage: Sorry, I realize this is ridiculously late, but that error was most likely caused by an AppleScript bug that affected OS X Panther 10.3.0-10.3.2, and was fixed, it seems, in OS X 10.3.3.

Hope this helps....

Works great and does with it is suppose to.

But when using a Networked Home Folder I get this error:

Can't get of alias "Users::Desktop:Helvetica.dfont"
