OpenType (was digital greek font)
- Don't know if most folks are aware yet (or care), but conversion of PostScript
Type 1 fonts to the OpenType format, is currently possible.
Adobe has a downloadable Font Developer Kit for this and FontLab
(current version) also allows for conversion. Well, sort of. I've had
problems understanding the intricacies of the former and suspect there
is some intermediary step missing in the FontLab instructions for
this. Meaning, I've had problems making a viable conversion that works
in all instances.
However, FontLab will be bringing out (scheduled for December) a new
version of its TransType (batch font format conversion software),
TransType Pro, that will automate this process. So, if anyone is
beginning to wonder what is going to eventually happen to that huge
investment you've made in your PS1 font library (maybe I'm the only
one), this may be the path forward.
