FontLab 7.2. Better every day.

We’re introducing FontLab 7.2, a massive update for our pro font editor for macOS and Windows that lets you create and edit fonts in any format for any script on any platform.

With this release, you can enjoy 30× faster proofing of variations and an all-new way of proofing OpenType features, easily navigate in large glyph sets, better interchange with other font editors, and with Microsoft VOLT. Overall, compared to FontLab 7.0 from just ten months ago, version 7.2 has over 300 new and improved features. That’s one feature improvement per day!

It’s hard to believe that FontLab VI came out just three years ago: for the versions published since then, the text of the release notes would fill 550 book pages. The early updates concentrated on bug fixes, but the latest versions focus on feature improvements.

Whether you’re already a FontLab 7 user, or you use another font editor, tune in for our talk to discover the key aspects of FontLab 7.2. To learn more details, join us for FontLab’s additional sessions in the ATypI 2020 Virtual exhibit space.
