TeXFontUtility2012.dmg2013-01-02 21:24This is the replacement for TeXFontUtility with the 2012 distribution. The manual does not yet reflect all the changes from the original TeXFontUtility---that is a big job that I have not been willing to tackle.

TeXFontUtility2013.dmg2014-12-17 16:27This is the replacement for TeXFontUtility with the 2013 distribution. (Seems to work well also with TeXLive 2014.) The newest item is an automated installation of minion2newtx, a package that provides a minion option to newtxmath with minion letters (Latin and Greek) and a math italic v quite distinct from Greek \nu. (Revised 2014-12-17.)

FontForgeInstall.zip2013-01-04 14:05Description of how to install the most recent version of FontForge with all features working. Instructions involve setting up a virtual machine with guest OS Lion, which has smaller memory requirements than Mountain Lion. These instructions are no longer useful---it is much better to simply download a complete binary from http://fuuko.libferris.com/osx/packages/
FontForgeScript.zip2014-11-04 18:51The FontForge binary from http://fuuko.libferris.com/osx/packages/ has some interface problems: (i) it will run multiple copies of the executable; (ii) you can't drop one or more font files onto it to open them. This script, an AppleScript application, which is convenient to mount in a Finder window's toolbar (see http://support.apple.com/kb/PH13935) will open an existing FontForge application if double-clicked, and will open any font files dropped onto it. The app is code-signed so that it can be listed on the Accessibility panel of Security and Privacy.
