As a first time font developer, I found FontCreator the perfect software for font development. I had experimented with other programs beforehand but found FontCreator to be the most reliable and efficient in comparison. Despite my inexperience, I was able to pick it up rather quickly and receive stellar results as the software is easy to learn and use. I would undoubtedly recommend this program to both experienced and non-experienced users alike as they are bound to receive beyond satisfactory results.

FontCreator 13, released in April 2020, is packed with features that blows away the competition. Brilliantly executed program with tools, such as Automatic Metrics, to save lots of time in font creation. I love the Visual Glyph Spacing preview, so you can get the spacing just right every time. It helps to be able to quickly replace the sample text so you can see the spacing on the fly.

The color vector fonts are the bomb. Can't wait to dig into that!

For **FontCreator **interface is so friendly it is easy to get work done even though you're not a Pro user. As a book designer i find it great for changing things inside a font so it will fit my needs.
Sometimes you use a nice font that has some mistakes of design in it - so it is the best tool I have found for it.
It is also great for creating a SIGN font for book design as you can see on my short video on my BLOG (the video is HEBREW) but it can be understood how easy it is (even on the Home edition)

I have been using Font Creator since 2006 in its various iterations: 5.6, 9, 11 and now 12. I am also a FontLab 5 and 7 user and I have always found Font Creator more congenial to get fonts done quicker and equally as good. Especially for newcomers to font design or editing, Font Creator has a quick leaning cycle quantifiable to one day for the basics and two or three days for the more advanced Open Type features. FontLab is the king of font editors but the learning cycle is long, weeks or months.
The only drawback for Font Creator is that it runs only on Windows and not on Macs. Currently I am running Font Creator on an iMac at 5k resolution running under Windows ToGo 10 loaded on an external SSD; it is simply beautiful and super fast.
I can strongly recommend Font Creator to both font novices and professionals.

My Use of FontCreator
I have used FontCreator since 2003 to edit and create my own fonts for Buddhist publications, which require additional diacritics (accents) for Pa?i in Roman script. Vietnamese Buddhists require many more glyphs in the Latin Extended Additional Character Set.

Beta Testing
Many improvements were made to the product with my input, especially for the auto-generation of Composite Glyphs and OpenType Features.

Ease of Use
FontCreator automates much of the complex process of designing OpenType fonts, inserting characters, and generating composite glyphs from base glyphs and combining diacritics. Beginners who need support will quickly get help from the support forum. Registered users can also request email support directly from the program’s developer.
