The light versions of DTL Bezier- and IkarusMaster are fully functional and only have one restriction: not more than 256 glyphs can be stored per database. With the light versions of BezierMaster, IkarusMaster and DataMaster it is possible to generate PostScript Type 1 fonts for Mac OS (only with the Mac edition) and Windows. In these modules also the conversion of PostScript Type 1, TrueType and OpenType to BE and IK format works. The light version of ContourMaster makes a complete testing of multiple font databases possible, which results in a listing (automatically improving is only enabled in the full version). However, the improver functions of DTL Bezier- and IkarusMaster Light can be used on font level (restricted to 256 glyphs) to make the necessary corrections. Of DTL KernMaster and TraceMaster only demo versions are available for free.
The light and demo versions of DTL FontMaster run under Mac OS 8.6 and OS 9.x, Mac OS X Classic mode, Windows 95/98, Me, NT, 2000 and Windows XP.
