PDF Version of this review FontCreator 14.0 Review.pdf

FontCreator 14.0 adds support for variable fonts and updates the interface to use docking panels. Three pre-defined themes have also been added.

The Comparison Toolbar has been replaced by a Text Editing Mode in the Glyph Panel, which allows users to type any text before or after the glyph.

Known Issue: The Complete Composites feature has not been implemented in the initial release. Anchor-based glyph composition works as before.

Free help is available on the support forum, even for the unregistered 30-day trial version. The Help File will be available online, so that anyone can see the features before downloading the free trial version. The trial version is the full Professional Edition, but it adds watermarks. Existing users may like to see which feature requests have been implemented already.

FontCreator continues to improve with updates to fix bugs, add new features, and improve existing features.

Some bugs are fixed without hours. See the list of new features below, added since FontCreator 13.0.

Conclusions

FontCreator continues to improve by adding full support for variable fonts. The new interface with docking or floating panels increases the amount of workspace on small screens, while allowing those with more than one monitor to extend their workspace beyond the primary monitor.
