ScanFont 3.0

Software from FontLab 3.0 product line - professional PostScript Type 1 and TrueType font creator.

ScanFont 3.0 - a new product from the creators of FontLab.

With ScanFont 3.0 you can create a professional looking technically correct digital font in minutes. If you don't want to create a font, just modify an existing one, you can edit the characters, add some pictures, and even add your signature. You can draw whatever you want (on paper clip with real tools or on the computer screen with virtual tools). Click the mouse button a few times and you're done!

Do you want to reuse the old "bitmap" fonts that you cannot replace with modern "outline" fonts, like Type 1 or TrueType? ScanFont 3.0 will do that for you. ScanFont 3.0 includes a very precise autotracing algorithm that is designed to work with characters, so everything that you can print on paper or see on the computer screen in Windows, you can transform into a high-quality TrueType or PostScript font.

The key features of ScanFont 3.0 are:

  • High-quality fully customizable autotracing algorithm especially designed to handle characters
  • Integrated bitmap and outline editors with more than 20 tools
  • 100-level undo/redo bitmap and outline editors
  • Automatic detection of characters and strings in a source image
