Custom-built tools lie at the heart of Alphabet’s daily workflow. They’re based on well-established standards and compile openly available data from reliable sources. We’ve decided to offer some of the tools — the product of over 20 years of font-engineering expertise — on this page. They’re available as online resources and apps or as plugins, macros, and extensions to use within a font editor.
Alphabet’s tools are in continuous development. We welcome reports of bugs and issues, as well as feature requests and data suggestions.
