FontCreator 11 released

May, 10 2017

Today High-Logic B.V. released FontCreator 11, coming with the most advanced OpenType layout features editor, an improved glyph editor supporting both quadratic- and cubic-based contours, and tons of enhancements to increase productivity.

FontCreator 11 benefits from improvements to the glyph editor supporting both quadratic- and cubic-based contours. It has several smart features to ensure smooth curve connections where you need them. Split self-intersecting contours is a new and easy way of removing unwanted parts of a contour. You can now quickly edit all glyph names, using free text and find and replace. Complete composites, optical metrics, and automatic kerning have been further improved, and the OpenType Designer has become even more intuitive.

With this new release our font editor comes with a new icon set, improved support for high-resolution monitors, and it is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version is significantly faster (20 to 30 percent), which is most noticeable with time-consuming tasks like autokern, exporting fonts, and image to outline conversions. It is also able to make use of more memory which is especially useful if you edit large fonts.
