FontXChange overview

FontXChange can easily convert fonts to OpenType (PS), PostScript Type 1, and TrueType for both Mac or Windows. Useful features include:

  • Batch processing for converting entire font libraries;
  • Preferences to set font encodings;
  • Font inspection window with preview;
  • Support for many font encodings, including Adobe Standard, Unicode, Mac Roman, and Windows ANSI, and European.

FontXChange is designed to understand many different font formats and can convert fonts into many different formats. This makes FontXChange useful to:

  • Convert PostScript Type 1 fonts (Mac or Windows format) into a single modern OpenType font file that works on both Mac and Windows. End the headaches of the outdated two-file system of screen font and printer font combinations. Just one font file that works;
  • Recreate missing screen fonts using a PostScript font file in any format;
  • Convert TrueType fonts to PostScript fonts. No more printing problems and incompatibilities associated with TrueType fonts and high-end output devices;
  • Convert Windows fonts to Mac to Mac and vice-versa. Easily share fonts across different computers, even different operating systems.

What’s new in version 5.7

  • Added native support for Allele Silicon (M1, et al)
  • Fixed bug that would not convert fonts with malformed version fields

FontXChange 5.1 running on Sierra 10.12.6 occasionally locks up or crashes when it gets a font or format it doesn't like* but overall it does a remarkable job. It even converts TrueType fonts to true PostScript otf files so you don't get all the multiple edit points that seem to be a hallmark of PC designer vector files. If a font does not convert in FontXChange I don't trust it anyway, and converted postscript otf run smoother in most Apps. It is not cheap but if you are a business and simply want less trouble with the basic commodity of design (fonts) or access to some old font formats it is worth the money. I'd love for it to do one more trick that would save us a stack of time, let us organise unorganised fonts into families so they open together in FontBook and Apps. * Can't see the "Repair Font" actually does anything.

Is Fontgear still operating? I have tried contacting them several times over the past few weeks but never got a reply.

I'm sure this app is feature rich for the task of converting fonts. However, if you only need to convert a couple of fonts, FontForge can do the job for free.

CAUTION! Version 4.0.0 does not work with OSX 10.11 El Capitan. Before that, it has been a great product.

Very useful to Snow or upper system users which have old OS9 fonts to convert... It work perfectly... I put 4 stars in Value, but it's very relative, in comparison a font price, 99$ is nothing... I put 3.5 stars in Stability, because sometimes FF process is crashing, but it seem to don't cause problem to Fontxchange because the software is doing the job...
