Font Pestle is an application for preparing symbol fonts and converting them into individual graphics. Font Pestle converts a font into a collection of individual graphic files. Each symbol within a font can be converted into a vector or bitmap graphic. Font Pestle can also create style sheets and tables mapping code points to names. Font Pestle can convert a symbol font into a collection of PDFs, great for printing at any size, or into a collection of PNG/TIFF/GIF files, ideal for including in web pages. Within Font Pestle you can customise the look and style of the symbols before converting. Fill, stroke, and background colour can all be customised.
