[Solved] Font Editor

  • # April 18, 2011 at 11:20 am

    I have found a font I like however, the spacing does not seem proportionate. Has anyone had experience or used a font editor or know of something that can help on this situation?

    do you mean the letter-spacing?

    p {
    letter-spacing: -0.5em;

    No, if it were that simple I would have used letter-spacing. The individual who created the font obviously did not take spacing the font proportionally into consideration that you see in Pro fonts. My question is if anyone has experience editing a font-family or know of such a program to do so?

    I believe FontLab can be used to adjust the kerning of fonts if thats what your after?

    Not used it myself though so its not a recommendation, just a suggestion.

    Oh wow. Thats um, pretty pricey to buy without feedback of using it. I’ll try the demo and see what gives. Thanks

    Ha that is pretty damn pricey, sorry friend. Their typetool does the same job, you’ve got a second font editing trial there as well.

    Haha, it was expected. Problem is, I have no idea where to start. I tried contacting the font designer to fix the issue. We’ll see. Maybe i’ll spend the day watching tutorials which I did not want to do.

    Maybe reconstruct the font on FontStruct… it’ll take a lot of work, but you can make any changes you want.
