Another unique new feature is the ability to convert Multiple Master fonts between platforms AND into standard Type I or TrueType fonts on either Macintosh or PC platform. This particular feature gives the Windows user, for example, the power to use a Macintosh Multiple Master font to create a TrueType PC font. Further, it will now be possible to create full Type I fonts, not just "virtual fonts" as Adobe Type Manager does, from any Multiple Master font. Ted Harrison, President of Fontlab, said "We're hoping that this will stimulate a renewed interest in multiple master fonts. It's a great technology which we think hasn't realized its full potential."
