This module can install under BaKoMa TeX 3.0 and later.

After installing MetaFont using this module, and restarting the BaKoMa Text Editor, you should see the `MetaFont' submenu in the `Utilities' menu of the Text Editor: This new submenu includes the following commands:

  • 'MetaFont + View'
  • `Plain MetaFont'

The 'MetaFont + View' command launches in sequence MetaFont (in proof mode), then GFtoDVI (on *.2602GF file), and finally, the DVI Viewer to show the result. Launching of the viewer after GFtoDVI is controlled by the `Launch DVI Viewer to show result' option of the Project Parameters dialog.
