March 28, 2012

Scanahand 4.0 is now available! Download the latest version from our download page:

Scanahand allows you to generate fonts without the need to know all of the technical details involved. All you need is a printer, a scanner, and a black marker or felt-tipped pen. If you ever thought about writing letters on your computer with a font based on your own handwriting, do give Scanahand a try.

New features include a smart character mapper, that automatically links missing letters to their upper/lower case counterpart and a brand new algorithm for calculating the best possible left and right side bearings for the basic Latin character set. The tracing method used by Scanahand has been further improved to generate even more stunning fonts.

Scanahand generates fonts with multilingual character sets covering over 15 languages. The premium edition features a template editor that allows users to create fonts that support numerous languages not available in the standard edition.
