FAQ FontFlasher

Q: I have FontLab Studio 5 and am trying to install FontFlasher 1 but the installation does not complete correctly. What should I do?

A: On Windows

  1. Open Windows Explorer and manually create the following folder: C:Program Files/FontLab/FontLab46/Macros/System/Tool
  2. Install FontFlasher
  3. Copy the file C:Program Files/FontLab/FontLab46/Macros/System/Tool/Pixel.py into the Macros/System/Tool folder inside of your FontLab Studio 5 folder (that's typically C:Program Files/FontLab/Studio5/Macros/System/Tool)
  4. Start FontLab Studio 5 and you should have access to the Pixel tool from the Macros toolbar

On Mac OS X

  1. Install FontFlasher
  2. When the FontFlasher installer asks you to choose the location of FontLab, choose Cancel
  3. After the setup is complete, copy the Pixel.py file from the FontFlasher folder (typically /Applications/FontFlasher ƒ/Pixel.py) into the Macros/System/Tool folder inside of your central FontLab Studio Library folder (typically [Your Startup Volume]/Library/Application Support/FontLab/Studio 5/Macros/System/Tool
  4. Start FontLab Studio 5 and you should have access to the Pixel tool from the Macros toolbar

Q: I want FontFlasher to open the pixelfont automatically in FontLab Studio 5 automatically. What can I do?

Make sure that FontLab Studio 5 is running, i.e. if it's not running, start it. If you have enabled Open font in FontLab, then FontLab Studio 5 needs to be already running when you click on the Start button in FontFlasher. Then, the font will automatically open in FontLab Studio.
