What is FontLab?
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.
FontLab VI keeps what’s best from FontLab’s classic apps, FontLab Studio 5 and Fontographer, including many familiar keyboard shortcuts. It also 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 variable fonts, so you can explore these new possibilities and expand your creative reach.
Comments and Reviews
Said about FontLab as an alternative
FontLab VI support modern features such as OpenType Variations (variable fonts) and color fonts. It has a modern interface, and supports Mac and Windows interface conventions instead of using X-Windows like FontForge. It is under active development instead of being mostly in maintenance mode.
FontLab VI has many features and functionality not present in Glyphs.
The ultimate font creator, glyphs is made for ease of use while Fontlab is the most used software by professionals. Of course there is a slightly higher learning curve but its completely worth it for all the control you get.
