TFConvert References

This section describes the .FNTDEF file format used by the TFConvert tool.

The .fntdef Format

The TFConvert tool creates a .tinyfnt font using a font definition file that you create. The font definition file, a text file with the .fntdef extension, specifies the TrueType font to import from, the range of characters to import, and other options. The .fntdef file contains one option on each line.

The ordering of statements in .FNTDEF files does have an impact on the font definition. For example, properties such as AntiAlias must be specified before the InputRange property.

The following topics describe the .fntdef options in detail.
