FontLab Studio 5, Fontographer 5 and TypeTool 3 on macOS 10.15 Catalina

[Edit: Updated on December 5, 2019 with info about FontLab 7 and about Crossover 19]
Apple released macOS 10.15 Catalina on October 7, 2019. This version of macOS only runs apps that are 64-bit, and removes the ability to run 32-bit Mac apps. This means that you cannot natively run our classic font apps on macOS Catalina: FontLab Studio 5, Fontographer 5, TypeTool 3. In this blog post, we’re discussing options that you have if you’d like to use Catalina. (Please check this blog post in a few days, we may have added some content by then.)
