Type light Description
Type light is a program that you can use to create, edit and convert OpenType fonts, namely TrueType (TTF) and PostScript (OTF).
The interface of the application resembles the one of a graphic editing tool. So, you can create a new font by establishing the metrics system (TrueType or PostScript), family name, sub family, full name and copyright information.
Some standard tools can help you draw fonts, such as a pen, selection, corner or smooth curve, straight corner, line, rectangle, ellipse or ruler.
In addition, you can select a character set and create new glyphs that are mapped to particular characters, change the grid size, preview fills, alter the glyph metrics, view glyph information, as well as reverse or flip the contours.
Other features of Type light let you edit point properties, rename the font, convert items to TT or PS curves, as well as undo and redo actions, among other many options. From the Preferences area you may select the window mapping mode (code pages, Unicode scripts, or glyph list), disable row resizing, as well as hide rulers or adjust the point selection sensitivity.
Type light supports some keyboard shortcuts, has a help file and worked well during our tests while using a moderate-to-high amount of CPU and system memory. We have not come across any issues, since the program did not hang, crash or display error alerts. All in all, Type light provides some interesting tools for editing fonts, but these can be primarily used by individuals with some skills in similar software.
