More 'Hundreds of bug fixes'. Must be one heck of a buggy app.

I'll go with Donmontalvo's suggestion below.

Except that FontLab Studio hasn't had a significant update in years, whereas Fontographer is not only still being updated, but is cheaper to boot, although I'd probably go with Glyphs which has amazing developer support.

Long time Fontographer user...get FontLab Studio instead (same company, but new code and VERY good).

Yeah. Makes you wonder.

At least it's not thousands of bugs, like Windows 7! (officially has 2,000 bugs)

All software has bugs, and Fontgrapher hadn't been actively developed for a while after Macromedia had it.

Looks like a very nice update, but beware: There is a problem for Mac G3 owners. The demo version of Fontographer 5.0 runs fine but then after you pay and receive the full functioning version it will crash on launch.

See the full crash report in the FontLab Forums:

Oh man! I got tired of waiting for them to upgrade Fontographer that I bought FontLab Studio a couple of months ago. Happy and disappointed at the same time.

Folks, this the version of Fontographer you have been waiting for! It is fully worth the upgrade price.

The download link at the top renders a DEMO version of the product.

"Demo limitation: fonts are only partially saved and generated fonts are watermarked. All fonts created by the demo are 100% valid and can be tested in any application."

Same here. Installer adds a DEMO version of 5.2.3 and does NOT update nor, thankfully, does it remove v.5.2.2, although MacUpdate indicates that it HAS updated v.5.2.2 to 5.2.3. THIS IS VERY ODD. What's up????

I've been a Fontographer since the late 80s. I started on the PC and moved to the Mac with the original Fontographer. I've waited nearly 10 years for this update and I really feel like it was worth it. It's the same solid application that it always was.

I've also been able to save a ton of projects with corrupted font fixing and or platform conversions.

I strongly recommend this program if you need to edit fonts or take care of clients that are still stuck in the Windows world.
