Welcome to the FreeHand Graphics Studio! This suite contains FreeHand, Extreme 3D, Fontographer, and xRes, comprising a total of three CDs. FGS CD 1 contains one installer that can install all products. Only CD 1 is required for installation. For late-breaking news, refer to the ReadMe in each product's application folder after installation.

When installing the FreeHand Graphics Studio, a serial number is required. It is located on your registration card and is valid for all four applications in the FreeHand Graphics Studio. Have this number available when contacting Technical Support.

FGS CD 1 contains the FGS Installer, FreeHand and Fontographer collateral materials, including the FGS Tutorial files, as well as the Clipart for use with FreeHand, Extreme 3D, and xRes.

FGS CD 2 contains the xRes collateral materials, including the xRes Learning files.

To generate Macintosh font files using Fontographer 4.1.5 for Windows, copy the resulting files to a PC-formatted disk and move them to a Macintosh hard drive. Use MMPC2MAC, a Macintosh utility provided on CD 1, to finish the conversion to Macintosh font files. This utility, the MMPC2MAC ReadMe, and Style Merger, which makes families out of related fonts, are located in the MacFiles directory of Fontographer. These Macintosh files have been binhexed to retain their file structure when placed on the PC. After moving them to the Macintosh, you may un-binhex them by using a Macintosh conversion utility, such as BinHex 4.0 or Compact Pro. The file names are MMPC2MAC.hqx, PC2MCtxt.hqx, and StylMerg.hqx. Please see MacRead.wri, also located in the MacFiles directory, for specific information and instructions for conversion.
