FontLab 7 for macOS and Windows is a modern, professional font editor, crafted for type designers and font geeks.
It lets you create, open, modify, draw, space, kern, hint and export desktop, web, color and variable OpenType fonts for any Unicode writing system, from Latin, Cyrillic and Greek, to Arabic, Hebrew and Indic, all the way to Chinese, Japanese, emoji, symbols and icons.
Discover FontLab 7
FontLab 7, works on macOS 10.12–10.15, on macOS 11 and Windows 7–10. It is the follow-up to FontLab VI, and carries the proud legacy of FontLab Studio 5 and Fontographer. Since the original release of FontLab 7 in December 2019, are added or improved over 250 features!
Boost your design productivity
With FontLab 7, you can edit curves precisely without zooming (Cmd/Ctrl+drag), improve consistency of the weight (thickness measurement, equalize uneven stems), quickly create kerning classes (now also both-sided) and fix clashing kerning combinations.
FontLab 7 fully supports variable fonts. You can open and export both CFF2- and TrueType VFs, with intermediate glyph masters and conditional glyph substitution, avar axis mapping and STAT axis instances. You can view multiple masters at the same time (as overlaid wireframes, and as cousins on the sides), and edit them (Edit across Layers, Match when Editing).
FontLab 7 now understands glyph naming from other font editors, and can automatically generate OpenType features based on different glyph naming schemes (it’s easy to batch-rename glyphs, too!).
Best FontLab ever
Built on a solid 64-bit foundation, FontLab 7 runs smoothly on macOS Catalina, on Windows 10, on older systems, and even on Linux! FontLab 7 focuses on stability, productivity and technical excellence. We’ve incorporated countless user requests, as well as some of our ideas that didn’t make it into the previous release.
