Hi How do you generate ‘sﬁl’ ﬁles in fontographer? Help! Jim
I am told this is the ﬁle format needed for suitcase 10?
That’s an old audio ﬁle format, dude. You wanna make revival fonts that you can hear? ;-) hhp
ok, i have a customer who wants ﬁles he can use with suitcase 10. Our fonts come in truetype and postscript, but he says he needs some special suitcase 10 font format which is really standard, and that we relly should include with our fonts????
Jim I’m going to move this thread to the BUILD forum. I’d have to agree with Hrant though, this sounds bogus to me. Which platform?
SFIL ﬁle type for Suitcase. Can’t be right.
Maybe SFIL has something to do with Type/Creator on a Mac…
’sﬁl’ is a Mac sound ﬁle ‘ﬃl’ is a Mac font ﬁle ‘SFIL’ is a Mac sound suitcase (storing multiple sﬁls) ‘FFIL’ is a Mac font suitcase (storing multiple ﬃls) http://developer.apple.com/documentation/mac/Toolbox/Toolbox-447.html
I don’t know where the customer got the sﬁl ﬁle extension from, but it was bogus… there is no special font format needed for Suitcase 10. I downloaded a trial copy of Suitcase 10 and it all worked ﬁne… Jim –—
