The instructions that come with the FIVe3D font making utility are pretty clear overall but on OS X 10.4 it can be confusing to find which WindowSWF folder to use. Is it /Applications/Adobe Flash CS4/en/Configuration/WindowSWF/ ? Or is it /Applications/Adobe Flash CS4/Common/First Run/WindowSWF/ ?
Actually, the place to put “Make a new typography file.swf” is here: /Users/youruserhandle/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CS4/en/Configuration/WindowSWF/.
I used a font called Roadkill. When the font was created, the Flash CS4 Output window said: ‘”Roadkill.as” is in the current folder.’
Since my hard drive is partitioned, it wasn’t immediately clear what was meant by “current folder” in this case. The font.fla file I used to create Roadkill.as via the font-making utility was on the 2nd partition, i.e. not on the main partition.
It turns out “current folder” meant the top most directory on the main partition on my OS X machine, right next to Users, Developer, Library, Applications, System.
