Overview of the benefits of FontLab 7
You can draw smooth and consistent glyphs, autotrace bitmaps, create overlays, simplify paths, equalize stems, scale contours, and maintain stroke thickness. You can draw in fractional or integer coordinates, see numerical and visual measurements, find and correct contour imperfections.
In FontLab 7, everything is enabled for colors. Draw multicolored contours, draw color contours, enhanced SVG and bitmap images, overlay layered fonts and create emoji or chromatic fonts for all OpenType Color-enabled platforms: Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CC 2018+, macOS, Windows 8+ , iOS, Android and modern web browsers.
Have you made your drawings elsewhere? No problem. Copy and paste glyph contours or color vector graphics from Adobe Illustrator, FontLab Studio or other vector drawing applications or fonts, import SVG drawings, bitmap images and new PDF graphics. Sort them in the Sketch Board, optionally convert bitmaps into smooth vector graphics using autotrace, then automatically assign the letter shapes to the glyphs to create a fully functional font in a few minutes. You do not need a separate ScanFont application!
