Turn letters into art:
- Express your imagination, prototype, and experiment. Draft glyphs with bitmap auto tracing and live calligraphic strokes.
- Draw and edit beautiful, smooth, consistent glyphs in fractional or integer precision, with the help of intelligent snapping and live numeric and visual measurements.
- Refine your drawings: create overlaps, simplify paths, and equalize stems. Scale while keeping stroke thickness, globally adjust weight and width, and find & fix imperfections.
Make words look good:
- Build and assemble glyphs from variable components or from self-adjusting segments or corner skins. Add accented glyphs with a simple double-click.
- Space and kern in multi-line tabs or windows that feel like a text editor.
- Add typographic smartness like ligatures, small caps, and old-style numerals with automatically-generated OpenType features, and test them in the integrated state-of-the-art complex-script text engine.
Give the text a voice:
- Explore new directions with color and variation. Extend and complete any font in FontLab, or in the mix with other font editors.
- Create, open, extend, test, and export font families, variable OpenType fonts, color fonts, and web fonts for any Unicode writing system.
- The interchange with other font editing apps like FontForge, RoboFont, or Glyphs. Supercharge your workflow with powerful add-ins and Python 3 scripts.
