Shape-Shifter ® version 1.7
A font (shape) editor, creator, and manager for AutoCAD, which works on all SHX files. Shape-Shifter has the following features and uses:

DEMATERIALIZE: Explode SHX files into a special font template which is a matrix of AutoCAD entities that can be manipulate in the drawing editor.

REMATERIALIZE: Recompile fonts and shape files from the special drawing template to SHP or SHX files.

DECOMPILE: Create well commented and structured source SHP files from binary SHX files for enhanced manipulation and character set patching.

RECOMPILE: Recompile SHP files to SHX beyond AutoCAD's 2000 byte limit. This allows for very detailed and accurate font and shape creation.

EFFICIENCY: No other font program has ADEL (Advanced Decoding/Encoding Logic) which allows you to select the character drawing style: fastest draw, highest resolution, standard vector, or mid-level speed and file size.
