OEM FontLab Fontographer 5

My personal advice? Learn FontLab. If you are serious at all about learning to design fonts, you will need the power of FontLab. It is necessary for excellence in letterspacing, kerning, OpenType features, and more. My books will show you how to use it. Not only does it excel as a powerful and flexible font editor, it enables the serious typographer to customize their existing fonts, add new glyphs as needed; critically adjust kerning and spacing; convert old fonts to a new format; and more. Draw geometric shapes with the Rectangle or Polygon tools including stars and rounded corners , and with the Ellipse tool. Draw calligraphic strokes with the pressure-sensitive Calligraphy Pen. Add nodes and slice through segments with Knife. Remove nodes manually with Merge Points and automatically with Clean Up Paths while keeping the shapes of the curves. Turn on Auto Curvature to keep nodes extra-smooth. Draw on the Outline layer. Place curves and bitmaps into the Template layer for reference. Turn template bitmaps into outlines with precise Auto Trace. Measure distances with the Measurement tool, and use arbitrary vector shapes as guides in the Guidelines layer. Make the glyphs lighter or bolder with Change Weight. Create intermediate weights with Blend Fonts. Edit your outlines faster with Power Nudge, slide node, G2 Genius nodes, revolutionary Tunni lines, live rounded corners.
