A font creator designed to help you build your own signature, logo, and handwriting, or a font to install and use on your computer
FontCreator is a powerful tool that lets you build and accurately design your own fonts. It can be both used by novices and experts.
An uneventful setup and a standard interface with well-organized toolbars
Once you have initiated the program after a brief installation, you are welcomed by a dialog that guides you to a user manual and FAQ on how to use Font Creator.
The user interface features a relatively straightforward layout, with a set of helpful toolbars that can be customized extensively. You can both change their layout and specify which buttons should be displayed in each one.
Name your font family and start editing characters
To get started, you must enter a name for your font family, and select the font style (regular, italic, bold, bold italic), preferred outline format and predefined outlines (include or do not include outlines).
You can edit a glyph by using the Free Draw Contours tool (adjust brush width and convert to contours), by inserting contours, or by importing an image of your own handwritten characters. Do not worry – the Undo and Redo buttons are at your command.
You can also search for a glyph by its postscript name and by its mappings, set bookmarks in the Glyph Overview and Glyph Edit window, change glyph properties, copy and paste glyphs, add a new character, use glyph metrics to help you design the font, and more.
Easy to use font design software tool fit for any user
First-time users will probably have a hard time getting around this software, but they should read the help file with confidence. It does not take a long time to learn how to use FontCreator, and its comprehensive feature set is explained in detail in the available documentation.
We have not encountered any problems during our tests. In addition, FontCreator uses a small amount of CPU and resources. The fact of the matter is that the software is great for building and designing fonts.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used FontCreator and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
