Mac OS X 10.7-10.9 compatibility

Note about Mac OS X 10.7-10.9 compatibility

In 2011, Apple released its new Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) operating system. Later, Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) were released. These versions of Mac OS X no longer supports PowerPC-based Mac applications. This affected a number of applications available from Fontlab Ltd.: some of your current FontLab applications do not work on Lion or Mountain Lion. (Windows versions of our products are not affected by this in any way.)

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 are our first apps that support the Mac Retina resolution natively. Other apps work correctly on Retina Macs but do not use the high resolution. The apps will look on Retina screens the same way as on non-Retina screens.
