             Editor's Review

For customers who intend to make fundamental fonts, or who wish to simply convert between font kinds, Altsoft Font Type Master is a good choice. It varies from various other font editors since it provides fewer tools, however the ones it provides are helpful. Novices might prefer to think twice before buying this application, because the support choices are restricted, however intermediate and state-of-the-art users should have no issues. There is a user guide that is split into 21 short articles, but we located typos in it that brings into question the credibility of the document altogether. Our e-mail to the tech support personnel went unanswered, but our e-mail to the sales team got a quick response. There isn’t one other technique accessible to contact the developer, nor are there any user forums or tutorials. The FAQs area is quite brief.

Altsoft Font Type Master is fairly easy to navigate, with the disadvantage being that while you scroll your mouse over icons, the name of the tool doesn’t appear. This was definitely unsatisfactory, as we had problem determining what a few of the tools were believed to do. The user interface is wonderful, nevertheless, and it has a one-of-a-kind design. Anything you open within a font – metrics, glyphs editors, glyphs map-- remains open in tabs across the of the work area unless you close it. Moreover, you could show numerous tabs by dragging them to a new view area. This allows you work with several glyphs immediately, which is rather the convenient tool.

If you determine you do not prefer the modifications you have done to a glyph, you could simply right-click and pick "reset glyph" from the menu, and all your modifications will be eliminated. Though helpful and one-of-a-kind among font editors, this feature is not specifically essential to creating your own font. The metrics view is instead complicated, since it is shown totally in tech format, with simply numbers along with descriptions showed. It is thorough, which excels, but we choose the user-friendliness of a simple font editor. Standard drawing features are merely that-- unbelievably basic. They are restricted to simply including curves or points, or removing them. Batch modifications are restricted to layout features; that is, you can standardize or undo layouts on composite glyphs. Multiple glyphs could be developed with the copy-and-paste tools. The glyph editor is not compatible with kerning or hinting changes.

This font generator also makes it simple to work on several fonts simultaneously, thanks to a menu on the left that shows what fonts you need to opened up. This is much better compared to the fonts-viewed-in-windows format that many other font editors apply, since it lowers clutter and is usually more visually pleasing. Moreover, the entire layout of the application has wonderful visual appeals. Windows as well as screens are straightforward and attractive, and the glyph editor uses up the most of the work area that offers better visibility and control over your edits.

The magic wand feature is a somewhat complex selection tool, so we choose to make use of the cursor as standard. You could scale, skew and rotate glyphs, though accessing the numerous transformation layouts can be somewhat complicated, since you need to go through the Glyph Publisher menu. The letters, which are "hollow" in the middle such as p, o, d, and so on, you should make certain you pick both sets of outlines or curves before you edit. Font Type Master is able to open up fonts from PDF documents, yet the guidebook’s disclaimer notes that there are constraints on this tool. The font editor program just opens font documents; no bitmap or vector files are compatible. The test font tool is restricted to numerous master fonts only.

You could open any sort of font file except for bitmap fonts, and you could keep fonts in any form that the application can open. This indicates that transforming from one synopsis font to some other is amazingly simple. Moreover, you could manually modify family and style names and make specific edits to glyphs, yet entire font edits are restricted to the contour modifications specified previously.

The Verdict:
In spite of convenience of usage and tech support downsides, along with an absence of sophisticated features, we discovered Altsoft Font Type Master to be a strong font editor. We review the program on a number of aspects, specifically the program's immense aesthetics and the truth that it features all the standard tools required in a font generato. Altsoft Font Type Master is best matched for average users; beginners might get bewildered by lack of tech support, though expert users might desire the missing features.
