    Found this forum several months back but decided I should join.
    First off I'd like to thank Gary for an excellent product. I think I have all of your cd's and a few of the downloads.
    I do have one question and it's probably an easy one for you.
    A few years ago I bought some of your fonts gemstone etc...
    My question is this, is there a way I can get it in a tff format so I can use it with more ease with my arbor image program? Now I have to import each dxf. Possibly there is an easy fix and I've been fighting it for a while LOL..
    Thanks
    Chris

    I don't think there is an "easy" fix, it requires good font design software, and then a fair amount of font specific design work, mainly to set letter spacing for every letter combination, then professional fonts involve a lot of additional design work to make sure they display right at various small sizes on various devices, though that's not that critical for a vector cutting font, but some font software is strictly raster (bitmap) based which won't work for making a vector cutting font, and freeware font software can come up short when it comes to desirable features like importing DXF characters.

    just search for font design software to learn more...
