The ultra bold font editor
With FontLab VI, you can create, open, modify, draw, space, kern, hint and export desktop, web, color and variable fonts. The app is an all-around font editor, but also supports data interchange with other font creation tools, making it easy to integrate into your existing workflows.
We’ve put our all into FontLab VI. We talked to type designers from all over the world and watched them work. We kept what’s best from our classic apps, FontLab Studio and Fontographer, including many familiar keyboard FontLab shortcuts. But we’ve reconsidered and streamlined every function.
We’ve also come up with some new, ultra bold ideas. FontLab VI brings groundbreaking new drawing tools and responsive contour operations to make your design process easier and more efficient, whether you’re an expert or a beginner.
FontLab now supports color and variability, so you can explore these new possibilities and expand your creative reach. We’ve integrated industry-standard software components and codified established best practices into the app, to help make your fonts technically top-notch.
Creating Bézier curves is no longer “mastery or mystery.”
Brush & Power Brush
Apply the Power Brush to a “skeleton” contour for live, adjustable calligraphic strokes. Control the angle and thickness of the brush, and tweak it even after you’ve drawn. Save Power Brush presets and apply them to other contours across your font.
Our Pencil is a radical new sketching tool. Trim, tweak, modify, smooth, adjust. Nothing gets in the way of creative successive approximation — especially not the usual constraints of wrangling Bézier curves.
Our Rapid tool is a Pen on turbo. Click for a line, double-click for a curve, that’s it. FontLab knows which nodes should be extremes, and automatically makes smooth curves with your chosen node positions.
Move the Rapid handles to change the curve segment Tension, or double-click to apply the current font-wide default. Rapid is great for quick drawing of consistent shapes, or for intelligent manual tracing of a scan or background image.
If you like drawing with an industry-standard Bézier pen, FontLab VI has a great Pen tool for you. We’ve combined the best of Fontographer, FontLab Studio, and some other approaches.
And if you find a traditional Bézier pen hard, you’ll love the rest of our drawing tools.
New way of doing portables: separate .svm packages -useful for plugins & so: reduces main exe size that contains only the program, then you can download the plugin package only if you want it! -ability for me to release a small program update through these separate files, without having to make the whole thing form scratch for each update. → More updated portables and less unnecessary size! This portable release includes: - main package (~245 Mb): 1 exe file ► more plugins can be added later by request, or simply add them to "\Sandbox\FontLab VI \roaming\modified\@PROGRAMFILESX86@\Fontlab\FontLab VI\" folder and similar, just like the installed version, and at next startup the portable will recognize your new files.
