Jump out of the Window or learn Polish
Some time ago I wrote the article,
"Get Calamus Fonts Without Selling the House". Some readers asked
if the other way round is possible, too. I
didn't think so,
but I found out it is possible indeed. There are two programs able to convert
Calamus fonts to more common font formats like TrueType or PostScript
Type 1. The first is a Windows program by the name of Type-Designer (http://www.dtpsoft.de/tdg.html),
Germany. For those who don't want to jump out of the window and buy a PC there is
another program named, "CFN". A bit too understated in my
you check out this link you will find it's in Polish, but it's easy to find
where to click to get your fonts converted. And Atari fans are open-minded,
whether they live on the isles or in the colonies, aren't

Argh, mon dieu,
I am hit! Porthos can't display this large vector
Porthos is a
must-have for all those who need an Atari-based
PDF viewer. For people who do graphics with
Calamus or DA's Layout it becomes a production
tool, because of its good export capabilities
for pictures (TIFF) and vector graphics (CVG/AI).
But Porthos needs
some more training for larger vector graphics.
How about a built-in
vector editor - Aramis? And a picture editor
to make the trio complete? Porthos didn't have
to fight alone, ne pas?
