It's one of the best font creator app that i've tested, stable, solid, a little old UI but this don't affect his functionality.
It's solid and functional, but the user interface is GOD AWFUL. It's like something made for robots. It hurts my eyes to look at it, and hurts my brain to think where a certain option might or might not be placed and how it might be named. Classic open source syndrome. Needs a MAJOR ui overhaul.
This does good for font creation, I used a program similar to this when I made up my own fonts, I just dont remember what that old program was called anymore.
