Wave of the future? - Macromedia Freehand

Well guess what...Fontographer has been defibrillated and is alive and well! I just got word from Macromedia that FontLab Ltd. will be the source of Fontographer, effective now. You can read all about it from the FontLab side at http://www.fontlab.com/Font-tools/Fontographer/ And guess what again... They're planning an UPGRADE! Be still my heart. They list the current versions as 4.1.4 on the Mac side and 4.1.5 for the PC. Upgrades will be to OS X and Windows XP, and they even want suggestions as to what WE would like to see in the new versions. Will wonders never cease? Ron...

    Wow, what a surprise!

    B-b-b-but $349 for software that's about 8 years old and doesn't even run on
    OS X? Gulp.

    Does anyone remember the price for the FreeHand 7 Graphics Studio that
    included FH 7, Fontographer, Extreme 3D, Xres and a slew of clipart and
    fonts?

    Ah, found it: $449 for the entire Graphics Studio in 1997.

    My thought was that since MM finally let someone else do something with a
    program that's languished in the background for so long that maybe they'll
    do the same thing with FreeHand.

    FWIW, Fontographer still works just fine on Classic, and it paid for itself
    a long, long time ago.
