How to Get Started
Using the Trans Type Program
This is a very elementary tutorial on
using the program.
Before you start create a folder to
place the fixed files in . I named mine FixedFonts.
Once the program is installed you click on
the Trans Type program icon to start.
This screen will open up:
|You will need to set the preferences
|Click on the Preferences button.
|Click on the Conversion Tab.

Now choose the files. To select a
range of files, click on the first one, then with

Once the conversion is finished, the little
conversion screen goes away. Everything

If you want to convert more fonts, you can clear
the list on the screen by clicking on the button
with the X on it. Then repeat the above
steps to convert.
If you are done, click on the door button and the
program will close.

I'm sure that this program does a lot more than I
have written here, but hopefully this will get you
started. If you have
questions, you can email me.
