Overview of FontLab Benefits
You can draw smooth, consistent glyphs, autotrace bitmaps, create overlaps, simplify paths, equalize stems, and scale outlines while keeping stroke thickness. You can draw in fractional or integer coordinates, view numeric and visual measurements, and find & fix contour imperfections.
In FontLab, everything is color-enabled. Draw multi-color contours, bring in color outlines, improve SVGs and bitmap images, overlay layered fonts, and create emoji or chromatic fonts for all Color OpenType-enabled platforms: Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CC 2018+, macOS, Windows 8+, iOS, Android, and modern web browsers.
Have you made your drawings somewhere else? No problem. Copy-paste glyph outlines or color vector graphics from Adobe Illustrator, FontLab Studio, or other vector drawing or font apps, import SVG drawings, bitmap images, and new PDF graphics. Arrange them on the Sketchboard, optionally turn bitmaps into smooth vector graphics using autotrace, then automatically assign the letterforms to glyphs to create a fully working font in a few minutes. No need for a separate ScanFont app!
