Font Creator 5.0 released

January 12, 2005

High-Logic today announces the release of Font Creatorâ„¢ version 5.0 for Windows, a powerful application that puts font creation within the grasp of the average PC user, typographers and graphic designers.

The new contour operations (union, intersection, exclusion and knife) greatly simplify and speed up the design process. Other new features include the ability to add selected characters or entire character sets with their mappings, to automatically calculate ascender and descender values and to show comparison glyphs in the glyph edit window. The new complete composites feature quickly adds diacritical marks to incomplete glyphs. This powerful feature can complete over a thousand characters within a few seconds.

Font Creator version 5.0 for Windows is available in two editions. The Home Edition costs $65.00(US) and the Professional Edition costs $99.00(US). Both versions may be purchased securely online. We have a special upgrade price for people who registered the Font Creator Program version 4.

  • Complete Composites; adds glyph members from composite data
  • Insert Characters feature to add one or more characters at once
  • Advanced contour operations: Union, Intersection and Exclusion
  • Knife feature to split contours
