This is an OS4 port of Michal Letowski's font.datatype:

It may crash on some fonts so be warned. This also happens with the m68k


1. Copy font.datatype to SYS:Classes/DataTypes/
2. Copy DataTypes/#? to DEVS:DataTypes/

To enable font antialiasing (assuming AA is enabled in OS4):

1. If it doesn't exist create a text file named "ENVARC:DataTypes/font.prefs"
2. Add the line "TRUECOLOR" to it


39.6 (30-Jan-2008)
 - Added TRUECOLOR/S option (makes antialiased font rendering possible)
 - Added FontDT.guide file to archive

--- original readme ---


        This package contains DataTypes picture subclass for loading and
displaying Amiga fonts. It will load normal fonts, colour fonts and outline
fonts. Configuration files allow user to customize appearance of fonts.

        This is version 1.3, a bug fix to version 1.2 (reduced stack usage -
no more problems with MultiView, MungWall hit fixed). Docs in AmigaGuide®
format and Installer script are included. Partial source is also included.

        FontDT-1.3 is Freeware.
