Working with Font Projects

Previous  Next

FontCreator uses its own file format to store the font data, several other settings and configuration parameters:

Font data
Font properties
Export settings
Guideline, Grid and Metrics settings
OpenType Layout Features
User notes


This will make sure that regardless of the font format you export, all information about the font will remain available.
