    Hello, you can download a demo here
    It’s an older version of the editor, that only exports to blitzmax format, but you can see most of its functionality and give it a try.
    then, in the samples and tutorials in the page you mention above, you can test the module yourself and it comes with some pre-rendered test fonts.
    hope it’s enough, anyway, if you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to let us know!

    I liked very much the program, but I am worried with a key issue.
    I need the fonts to do a private app for sell, but the fonts in FontMachine seems to be from microsoft, like Arial and Times New Roman.
    Do you have any idea how to solve this issue? Or if I buy the the jungle ide will I have all rights to do it?

    FontMachine uses the fonts you have installed in your system and draw a bitmap with the selected font. Then it uses portions of the bitmap to allow you to draw text on the game canvas. The original fonts are not included or distributed, so no legal issues AFAIK. Anyway, you can use creative commons fonts with fontmachine if you’re worried
