Convert between .dfonts and TrueType fonts.

Overview

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 solve this problem by allowing you to convert your .dfonts into regular resource fork-based TT fonts. That way, you can be certain you're using the exact same font set both natively and in the Classic environment.

What's new in dfontifier

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

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.

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....
