Join the FontCreator 8 Beta Team!

Postby Erwin Denissen » Mon May 19, 2014 11:06 am

A year ago we released FontCreator 7.0, which introduced several great new features and enhancements, like optical metrics, and script based support for OpenType Layout Features. In August 2013 we added color support to FontCreator version 7.5.

All of these improvements proved to be a huge success. However we soon found out there was a need for extending the OpenType Layout Feature support, as several professional font designers let us know about the importance, so that is what we've added to the upcoming FontCreator 8.

We invite you to try FontCreator 8 Beta. It includes advanced support for OpenType Glyph Positioning, which is mainly used for non-Latin scripts like Hebrew and Arabic.

Are you currently working with other tools (e.g. Microsoft VOLT) to add such support to your OpenType fonts, or are you eagerly waiting for such advanced features to become available in your favorite font editor, then do join our beta team by submitting a ticket here:

By joining the beta team you will get early access to new features and it gives you an opportunity to help us improve them before they are publicly released.

Thank you for your support!
