GlyphHanger is a Mac OS X application that takes the currently-selected text in the frontmost application and copies it to the Clipboard as an antialiased image with an alpha channel, suitable for use in a Photoshop file or other document.

What's New

Version 1.0:
  • Added a "radius" text field for enveloping of surrounding area, to catch flourishes and stray diacritics.
  • Updated the online help.
  • Changed button title from "Copy" to "Convert and Copy" for the sake of clarity.
  • GlyphHanger is now an interactive application.


Mac OS X 10.5 or later

Still the same problem I mentioned below and in addition, the longer the text paragraph the smaller the resulting font.

I've included a radius text field in the new version to assist in preventing text from being clipped. If your text is getting clipped, try increasing the radius, then cropping any extra whitespace (well, transparent space) from around the resultant image once you have all font flourishes/ascenders/descenders/etc. inside the bounding box of the image. With regard to the size changing, I'm not seeing that, so if you wouldn't mind contacting me to help work through that, I'd most appreciate it. Thanks! Cheers, Andrew Merenbach

Could be useful but copies only part of the text.
