Description of dfontifier 2.0.1

BrothersoftEditor: dfontifier is an application that can convert Mac OS X-style Datafork TrueType fonts (.dfonts) into ordinary Mac OS 9-style TrueType fonts and vice versa.

* This may be useful when sending jobs to service bureaus that are still in OS 9.
* Also, while most font managers I've seen, including Alsoft's MasterJuggler, Insider Software's FontAgent Pro, and Extensis's Suitcase or Font Reserve, have the ability to "bridge the gap" between the OS X native and Classic environments by making fonts you've activated available to both environments, they, as well as OS X itself, are limited when it comes to data fork-based fonts. For example, if you have AmericanTypewriter.dfont installed in your Classic "/System Folder/Fonts/" folder or enabled in your font manager, it'll be available to native OS X applications, but since Classic doesn't know how to make use of data fork-based .dfonts, OS X or your font manager can't make it available to Classic. dfontifier can help solve this problem by allowing you to convert your .dfonts into regular resource fork-based TT fonts. That way, when you install your fonts, or use your font manager to enable your fonts, (including what would be many default, Apple-installed .dfonts), you can be certain that you're using the same exact font set in the native OS X environment as you are in the Classic environment. For more information on resource and data forks, see below.

What's new in this version:

* Worked around an AppleScript bug affecting the System Events application within OS X v.10.2.8 specifically, where it would fail to set the file type and creator type of converted fonts, resulting in generic-looking documents rather than usable fonts.
* A couple of minor user-interface tweaks

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
