With over 5 million downloads to date, FontCreator is considered the world's most popular and best font editor. Create and edit OpenType and web fonts. An advanced feature set makes it the tool of choice for professionals, and its intuitive interface is straightforward enough for users at any expertise level.
When you create or open a font, FontCreator displays an overview of all available characters. You can simply add missing characters, or select an existing character, and modify its appearance. You can import (scanned) images of your signature or company logo, or make a font from your own handwriting. With FontCreator you can also fix character code-points, font names, glyph names, and kerning pairs. At any time, you can preview your typefaces before installation. OpenType features are preserved on opening a font, and you can use the OpenType Designer to visual edit the features and lookups. The OpenType proofing tool allows you to quickly track down and correct text layout issues. This professional font editor supports both quadratic- and cubic-based contours and has several smart features to ensure smooth connections where you need them. The validation features help you locate and fix possible outline issues.
FontCreator is a true native font editor, so there is no need to buy or install third-party tools or extensions.
FontCreator is the first font editor that allows you to make scalable color fonts, supporting both COLR and SVG color extensions. This allows you to create multi-colored glyphs for systems that support it, while maintaining backwards compatibility for systems that do not.
Use FontCreator to debug OpenType layout features with the interactive proofing tool. It uses an advanced shaping engine which allows you to view, create, edit, and debug even the most complex fonts.
The optical metrics feature in the professional edition simplifies one of the most complex and time-consuming tasks in font design. It analyzes a set of the most common characters to find the best left and right side-bearings for each of these glyphs.
