DfontSplitter 0.4.1 for Mac

DfontSplitter logo

I have just released a new version of DfontSplitter for Mac. It is a bugfix-only release, containing a single fix for an issue that affected some non-English versions of Mac OS X.

New Features and Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug where DfontSplitter would report valid files as not being in the correct format on some non-English versions of Mac OS X. File type detection is now done through uniform type identifiers, avoiding this issue.

Known Issues

  • Converting TTC files on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) does sometimes run into problems, where the TTC splitting script can’t open the TTC file. The reason for this is currently unclear.
  • Moving TTF files that have been extracted from a .dfont over to Windows — please see this workaround.
  • Some Font Suitcase files may not contain TTF data that can be extracted.

Users of DfontSplitter for Mac should update their copy of the application by launching it, and choosing DfontSplitter > Check for Updates from the menu bar. Alternatively, you can always download a fresh copy from the DfontSplitter project page.

    Just wanted to say that even though the download page for dfontsplitter claims its just for Intel, it seemed to work fine here on my OSX 10.5/powerpc station.

    Rory Arms,

    Thanks for that feedback. It is designed to be a universal binary and run on both PowerPC and Intel, but when I attempted to run the PowerPC build under Rosetta, it did not launch. I don’t have a real PowerPC Mac with which to test, so I assumed there was an issue with the PowerPC build. Perhaps it is just an issue with Rosetta!

    It is really helpful that you can clarify that it seems to work on a ‘real’ PPC machine!
