Speedpunk

by Yanone

“Speed Punk is a tool for modern font editors such as Glyphs andRoboFont that will illustrate the amount of curvature of glyph outlines.” A perfect shape according to Speed Punk is not necessarily a perfect shape, but I find this tool invaluable as a second opinion when I’m not sure what needs to happen with certain curves.

At €20.00 his is the first paid tool to be featured on this site, but IMO totally worth it.

Version Control

by Alexander Lubovenko

“Version Control allows saving the current glyph as version and managing these versions. For example, if you draw a glyph and doubt in correctness of current position you can save it as the version and continue drawing. Then, if necessary, return to any previous versions, manage them, compare with current or view all glyph revisions in SpaceCenter, replace the drawing of current glyph with version`s drawing or delete it.”

Touché

by Nina Stössinger

“Looking through your kerning, you try to catch them: colliding glyph pairs. But did you remember to check your i-diacritics against your superior numerals, ogoneks against brackets, the dcaron against the asterisk? Touché can take some guesswork out of things by listing the pairs whose black bodies touch, taking spacing and kerning into account.”
