In the metatype FAQ, there's a section called "I have Metafont sources of some font. How could I convert it to TrueType using Metatype?" In that, he lays out a dozen steps that really should be scripted. Does anyone know of such a script? (I understand the result won't look very good at low font sizes.)

  • Perhaps you could adapt mf2pt1 (which is a perl script)?

    Is Opentype an acceptable target? I ask because there are good quality converters from Type-1 fonts to OTF. Dec 18, 2013 at 8:33

    If I can use it in OpenOffice, then it's acceptable.
