Does anybody know of any software that can cut Chinese fonts? I'm trying to start a new business, and I need to know which programs will allow me to cut Chinese fonts.

Thanx in advance.

It is unlikely you will find a 'cutter software' for Chinese characters...that you would do with you design program. If you have a program now for Chinese character...just cut and paste or export/import.

That's what I do, my Mac comes with all the Asian fonts so I design on my Mac and import the design into flexi. The fonts are available on many font sites and in font paks that can be purchased.

I can type using IME (input method engines) in Chinese. Signgo won't allow for that. What I can understand from what you guys are saying is to type in another program, save as jpeg, and import, and allow signgo to trace it? Sorry, I am totally new to this region.

So there aren't any programs out there that would let me type using my IME?

Thanks again.

You may need to activate the fonts so signgo will accept them. The fonts I use are true type fonts which almost any program will recognize.

I wouldn't save it as a jpeg and trace it, you would get a much better result if you type it into a vector program and convert it to an outline (if you're using illustrator it's the Type | Create Outlines menu). You can then save it as an eps file or whatever vector format signgo accepts and cut it.
