Bug : The current version has "Magnificatio", missing an 'n' at the end.

I like that I can use the arrows to move the cursor and 'enter' to toggle the bit :)

Where? Can you show me a screen shot? It may simply be that the 'n' got cut off because your computer is using a slightly larger font than mine.

Space works too, and there are keyboard shortcuts for navigating (Ctrl+W, Ctrl+P, Ctrl+N, Ctrl+F). The first font editor I made was keyboard-only. I've found that there are strengths and weaknesses to the keyboard and mouse, so I decided to implement both.

Also, this project isn't dead. I'm working on adding support for importing BDF fonts. I'll release the source soon.

It was the font size. I don't know why it was so big before, but I recently switched to an old theme and that font makes it fit. Thanks!

New update! I've added support for importing BDF fonts and including a package of the 77 BDF fonts from the RockBox project. I'm publishing source code, too, so you can add your own exporters if you want. You'll need 7zip to extract the BDF package because compressing it with ZIP resulted in a file too big to upload.

Update: Help now has topics, text preview has word wrap, and it now runs on .NET 3.5 Client Profile, so it should work on Vista out-of-the-box.

I didn't have time to check the last two versions, but is it now possible to instantly import 8xp fonts into MFE or vice-versa? If I recall correctly, Yuki's on-calc Font Editor let us do that, but it only supported Omnicalc. Or is there some limitation that prevents this from being easily doable on a computer?

EDIT: Nvm it does for Omnicalc and ZStart now. Good

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
