Today we released FontXChange 5.0 for Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11).
This is a free upgrade for all current FontXChange customers.
FontXChange is a font conversation tool that converts fonts between different file formats. This makes FontXChange useful to:
• Convert PostScript Type 1 fonts (Macintosh or Windows format) into a single modern OpenType font file that works on both Macintosh & Windows. End the headaches of the outdated two-file system of screen font and printer font combinations. Just one font file that works.
• Convert TrueType fonts to PostScript fonts. No more printing problems and incompatibilities associated with TrueType fonts and high-end output devices.
• Convert Windows fonts to Macintosh and vice-versa. Easily share fonts across different computers, even different operating systems.
• Convert to web fonts that can be used on web pages
A free demo version of FontXChange can be downloaded here.

What do you think – is it working?
