FontLab Studio is a comprehensive font editor designed for professional users, such as designers and typographers.
The interface is not particularly attractive but user-friendly. You can open fonts from a custom location or the ones built into Windows, as well as ask the program to search for fonts on the computer.
For each glyph you can edit the name and Unicode character, along with classes and type. It is possible to replace existing glyphs, rotate, shift, scale or mirror them, as well as adjust metrics and apply effects (e.g. bold, shadow, gradient, 3D rotate).
You can add notes for each glyph, delete glyphs from the respective font family, as well as use standard and advanced drawing tools to edit glyph looks, such as connection corrections, interpolation, conversion (e.g. curves to PostScript), optimization, and guide alignment.
Plus, you may import backgrounds, bitmap fonts, EPS, metrics and Mac font files, as well as export backgrounds, EPS or metrics, and save the project to file for further modifications. These are just some of the options provided by FontLab Studio.
The software application supports hotkeys and includes online tutorials. It has a good response time and uses low CPU and RAM, so it does not interfere with the runtime of other apps. We haven't come across any difficulties in our evaluation. Thanks to its wide range of options and configurable settings, FontLab Studio should satisfy advanced users.
