Note for Mac users: the Mac versions of BitFonter and ScanFont do not work natively on the most recent Mac OS versions; for those users we have created a special installer that runs the Windows version of the app in a WINE wrapper, on Mac OS. We find this works pretty well, but the Mac versions not being native is one of the reasons we are reducing the price.
