easier way.
Authored by: fenevad on Jan 15, '02 10:35:48AM

I have tried both the HexEdit and SNAX methods described in postings on this topic exactly as described and I end up with font files that are corrupt in every case. ATM Deluxe flags them and font tools like Fontographer and TransType won't open them, saying that they are damaged.

I also tried the command line version and found that the SetFile command is not available to me, despite DeveloperTools being installed.

Does anyone have any comments on why these methods would fail or why someone with DeveloperTools installed wouldn't be able to use the commands it installs?

Turns out the problem was that the font I was trying this with was, in fact, corrupted. Funny thing. Still don't know why SetFile won't work on my machine though.

If you have the developers tools installed you may not have them on your path. You need to type:
/Developer/Tools/SetFile

If that doesn't work try locate SetFile to find it or use Sherlock.

Add the directory to your path :

if you use csh or tcsh add add the line to ~/.tcshrc
set path=($path /Developer/Tools)

in sh/bash add this line to ~/.profile or .bashrc
PATH="${PATH}:/Developer/Tools"
