Hey thats great to hear but i can't find anything about that on the web. can you point me in the right direction? also is that other program for MAC or PC? im trying to figure out a way to put my gerber fonts in use with Autocad and the only way i think i can do that is to convert Gerber Fonts to TTF's.  Any ideas would be great!
