Welcome to FontCreator 12


FontCreator allows you to create and edit TrueType, OpenType and Web Fonts. The font editor lets you easily select and modify the entire character set. Features include the ability to convert images to vector-based outlines, thus enabling you to create fonts with your own signature, logo and handwriting.

The intuitive interface makes FontCreator the perfect tool for both new and experienced users. The advanced validation features make the design process easy and help you to avoid common mistakes. The OpenType Designer allows you to easily add OpenType Layout Features to your fonts.
