Linked Shapes: Define a shape once, like an o, and re-use it across many characters, like bdgpq. Make changes to the Linked Shape, and it updates all the characters linked to it. Test Drive: Try out your font as you type. Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs! Ligatures: Combine a sequence of characters into one new supercharacter, like Æ or ¼. POW. Kerning: Standard character spacing feeling awkward like a gradeschool slowdance? Kerning gets characters together and feelin’ good. Import SVG Fonts or outlines: Use your favorite vector editing program to create vector outlines, then import them to characters via SVG. Or open a whole SVG Font at once. All the Chars: Easily select some common Unicode character ranges to design, or input arbitrary ranges - up to U+FFFF. That’s 65k characters of excitement.

    Fontographer

    Fontographer is a font editor that was originally developed by Altsys but is now owned by FontLab Ltd. Fontographer was developed by James R. Von Ehr for the Mac and released in January 1986. It was the first commercially available Bézier curve editing software for a personal computer. This made the development of typefaces cheaper than ever before. In 1995, Altsys was acquired by Macromedia and Fontographer were incorporated into the Macromedia product lineup. Although development of the font editor was frozen from 1991, when version 4.1 was released, until 2006, many font and graphics designers continued to use it. In May 2005, FontLab Ltd. announced that they had licensed distribution rights from Macromedia, and resumed development. In December 2005 FontLab shipped a new version of Fontographer for Mac OS, running natively on OS X and featuring numerous bug fixes. In June 2010, Fontographer version 5.0 was released by FontLab. This represents the first major features added to the product since 1996.

    FontLab Studio

    FontLab is both the name of a company, FontLab Ltd, and the former name of their flagship font editor product, now called FontLab Studio. After Fontographer from Altsys was acquired by Macromedia and the development of the product was stopped, FontLab became the most-used font editor for professional type designers. FontLab Studio is a complete font editing solution, which can be used for all steps of a font creation process: drawing, OpenType scripting, hinting, converting. The original make of the software was SoftUnion Ltd of St. Petersburg, Russia with its lead programmer Yuri Yarmola. Pyrus North America Ltd, of the USA was formed in 1992 to distribute and market FontLab 2.0 for Microsoft Windows, which came out in 1993. Eventually Pyrus bought all the rights to FontLab; hired Mr. Yarmola; and renamed the company. FontLab’s first Mac OS product was FontLab 3 for Mac, in 1998.

    Glyphs

    Glyphs is a Mac-only font editor developed by Georg Seifert. In contrast to other font editors Glyphs is built around the the concept of editing glyphs in a word context.

The “font mastering” takes place automatically during export. By default, Glyphs automates a many technical details for the designer, but they can be overridden if needed. Currently the app is offered as standard and Mini version.
