Since the early 2000s, FontLab has been the dominant software tool for commercial/retail digital font development.FontLab is a comprehensive font editor designed for professional users, such as designers and typographers. Its purpose is to provide a full-featured yet user-friendly user environment for customizing the way each symbol in a font looks like.

FontLab Crack Benefits
Boost your design productivity:
With FontLab 7, you can edit curves precisely without zooming (Cmd/Ctrl+drag), improve consistency of the weight (thickness measurement, equalize uneven stems), quickly create kerning classes (now also both-sided) and fix clashing kerning combinations.
FontLab 7 fully supports variable fonts. You can open and export both CFF2- and TrueType VFs, with intermediate glyph masters and conditional glyph substitution, avar axis mapping and STAT axis instances. You can view multiple masters at the same time (as overlaid wireframes, and as cousins on the sides), and edit them (Edit across Layers, Match when Editing).
Best FontLab ever:
Built on a solid 64-bit foundation, FontLab 7 runs smoothly on macOS Catalina, on Windows 10, on older systems, and even on Linux! FontLab 7 focuses on stability, productivity and technical excellence. We’ve incorporated countless user requests, as well as some of our ideas that didn’t make it into the previous release.
Turn your ideas into shipping fonts:
Designers from all over the world have used the app to create massive variable font families (Grand Gothik by Parachute, Circe Slab by Alexandra Korolkova & Oleksa Volochay / ParaType, Fact by Alexandra Korolkova & Manvel Shmavonyan / ParaType, Bolyar Sans by Jordan Jelev & Vassil Kateliev / Fontmaker), ambitious historical revivals (CAL Bodoni by Dave Lawrence / California Type Foundry), decorative one-offs (Wanchy by Matthijs Herzberg), and color OpenType fonts like the titling font for the Joker movie by Chad Danieley.

What’s New in FontLab 7.1 latest Version
Rewritten from scratch and in glorious Retina HD, this release is an important milestone in the development of our pro font editor. We’ve worked with the type industry’s best brains, creative thinkers and problem solvers. We’ve redesigned the user interface, so you can work with tabs on a notebook display or with floating windows on multiple monitors. We’ve unified the Glyph and Metrics Window, so you can draw and edit across multiple glyphs and masters, working on entire words or phrases at once.
Did we say draw? Drawing in FontLab VI is an immensely pleasurable experience! (As it should be, really, since that’s what you do most of the time.) The Pen and Pencil tools are better than ever, but with the brand-new Rapid tool, you’ll get pretty curves in many fewer clicks. Fancy new phrases like Power Nudge, Servant and Genius nodes, Tunni Lines, tension, Curvature, Harmonize and Balance doesn’t just promise easier and faster ways of getting the right curves — they deliver! These new techniques can assist you in your drawing process, but of course, you’re the one with the final control over the curves, whether they are TrueType or PostScript.
We’ve replaced the more limited old Multiple Master interpolation models with a new Variations workflow, so you can have virtually unlimited axes, intermediate font, and glyph-specific masters. You are no longer forced to have your glyphs point-compatible at all times, but if you do need point compatibility, our revolutionary Matchmaker tool and automatic Match Masters will get you there.
Element References are a powerful way to work with repeating paths and contours — more like CFF subroutines than TrueType components. You can use them not just for base and mark glyphs, but also for open path fragments like serifs, and they’re linked in a bi-directional way.
