Type light Review

Tina de Pierre
An editor for fonts that can design and edit PostScript OTF and TrueType TTF font files
A review of Type light by Tina de Pierre

Type light is a freeware font editor which can edit and convert between TrueType and PostScript fonts.

Like many graphic editors, Type light features a layout with an area for editing fonts and certain tools for modifying them. Users of vector graphics editors shouldn't have a program here.

The standard tools offered by Type light offer the ability to draw shapes and to manipulate them. Rectangles, lines, ellipse, selection are some of the basic tools. Type light also provides tools for editing point properties, converting fonts between TrueType and PostScript, undo and redo and more.

Fonts edited can be saved as TTF or OTF files and can contain within them different items such as copyright, font family name, sub family and the full name.

In conclusion, Type light is a good free font editor which is the little brother of Type, a full commercial package which includes more tools. For those with experience editing vector graphics, Type light shouldn't take any time to get the hang of.
