FZX Font Editor

Usage:

FZX Editor has been initiated by Andrew Owen, who worked with Einar Saukas and some others on a font driver system for the ZX-Spectrum that supports proportional text simply with PRINT # commands.

  • CHR files (768 bytes)

Partially supported file types (saving as only):

  • ASM files

Working features:

  • Edit all chars of your font with a scaleable grid. 
  • Use line, ellipse, rectangle tools for drawing
  • Use the copy tool to copy a rectangular range into the Windows clipboard
  • Use the paste tool to paste any image from Windows clipboard into the grid
  • Flipping and rolling tools
  • Text preview with customizeable text
