FontXChange Font Conversion Utility Enhanced for Webfont Creation

Back when FontXChange was first released, many designers still had PostScript and TrueType fonts in their collections, while the world had moved on to the cross-platform OpenType format. So what did you do if you had older fonts for which no OpenType version was available? Conversion to this format was thus for years one of the main roles of FontXChange. It can also recreate missing screen fonts using a PostScript font file in any format, convert TrueType fonts to PostScript format and convert Windows fonts to Macintosh and vice-versa. The utility provides batch processing for converting entire font libraries and includes a font inspection window with preview, and is said to provide support for many font encodings, including Adobe Standard, Unicode, Mac Roman, Windows ANSI and European.

More recently, it has also offered web font support for conversion to WOFF, SVG and EOT font formats, as well as features to create HTML examples using the @font-face tags for converted webfonts, to simplify font support on user websites. Version 5.1 extends this by adding support for the new WOFF2 webfont format, bug fixes and a UI update.

FontXChange for Mac can be purchased on the FontGear site for $99. A trial version is also available for download. Also available is an older Windows version.
