Mac OS X 10.7-10.11 compatibility

Note about Mac OS X 10.7-10.11 compatibility

Recent versions of Mac OS X (since 10.7 Lion in 2011) no longer support PowerPC-based Mac applications. This affected a number of applications available from Fontlab Ltd.: some older FontLab applications do not work on 10.7 or later operating systems. For ScanFont and BitFonter, we have provided a workaround by packaging the Windows application in a WINE wrapper that allows it to run on Mac OS X. Buying ScanFont or BitFonter "for Mac" means getting the Windows version with the WINE wrapper in a single installer. We considered discontinuing these applications, as they do not sell enough units to justify new versions, but as there are no alternatives available on Mac OS, we continue to make the WINE-wrapped versions available as an imperfect but useful workaround.

(Windows versions of FontLab products are not affected by this in any way.)

Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and later created some minor issues for FontLab Studio, which were addressed in version 5.1.5.

If you're on Mac OS X and using Mac OS X 10.7 or newer, please read this note carefully.

Note: TransType 4 and FontLab Pad were our first apps that support the Mac Retina resolutions natively. Our other apps work on Retina Macs, but do not use the high resolution. The apps will look the same on Retina screens as on non-Retina screens.
