OpenType Layout Features Unleashed with FontCreator

Since FontCreator is available only on Windows, not all font designers know that it has many powerful features. This demonstration will show how to detect and fix problems related to OpenType layout features. The interactive OpenType Designer—along with feature code generation, proofing, and VOLT, OTLFD, and FEA compilers—makes FontCreator the perfect tool, allowing you to focus on specific OpenType features.

In 1997, Erwin Denissen developed a font editor for Windows as a graduate project at Fontys University Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Over the years, he continued to improve the software, now known as FontCreator, while also working as a software engineer at Capgemini. In 2004, Denissen resigned from his daytime job to entirely focus on his own company. Due to an intuitive user interface and its superior tools for editing and proofing OpenType layout features, FontCreator has become one of the most popular font editors known today. Denissen lives and works in Bilthoven and usually tries to avoid conferences.
