Commercial Macros for FontLab

Goran Soderstrom's picture

Hi,

I want to find out which commercial macros for FontLab that are available for purchase. Anything that has to do with effective font production.

Is there a list somewhere, or could we perhaps make one right now?

Thanks!

Great tip! The "RMX Add MM weight axis" seems a great tool. I was just looking for something like this.

Every time I look at those tools I start chomping at the bit to figure out WTF I’m doing so I have a reason to use them.

It's always the other way ’round James. Tools are there to help you when *you* need them.

Jos, I don’t disagree with you, but first I need to get my basic fonts to a point that the tools become applicable. Fortunately I’m not that far off!

goran,

if you are looking for tools to use on your own work, another way to go about it would be to ask:

1. what kind of macros do i need to make my work easier/faster/possible?
2. are there free macros which do these things?
3. if not -- who is able to write such macros, and how much would it cost?

you can try to write your own stuff -- do you know robofab? the documentation is very good and contains lots of samples, and people on the mailing list are always willing to help.

cheers,
- gustavo.

Please post here the additions that are listed on that page, and I'll add them.

Karsten Lücke and Christian Robertson have some FontLab scripts available on their websites.
