APDL readies TypeStudio 2By Chris Williams. Published: 10th Jul 2004, 23:20:53 | Permalink | Printable
Text design softwareAPDL is to soon release TypeStudio 2, a text and font manipulation package - think MS WordArt, but at least with some class and RISC OS font anti-aliasing. An example of the software's output is pictured on the right.
With TypeStudio, users can apply shadows to text, fit text to a curve, and perform other effects, with the final design saved as a Drawfile for other applications to use and work on. We're told TypeStudio 2 is a "new" application that's an "altered version of FontFX 6", and will be compatible with RISC OS 3.1 to 5. It'll also be bundled on a CD along with at least 100 fonts and TypeStudio 1, according to APDL.
