Awesome, but needs some polish
This appears to be the only font editor in the Mac App Store. There is a non App Store version of this app on the web that seems to be popular.
It did everything I needed to do, but I was fumbling all the way through using it - used command-z a lot.
There is nothing to tell you what the tools are. Some are obvious but most are just symbols that mean nothing to the average user. Some tools tips when hovering over them would be great.
Also, there is no help file, or manual. There is a manual/tutorial on the website, but it is severely lacking in details. It doesn’t tell what all the tool icons are either. There are even a few videos, but they have no sound so you are just basically watching someone move the cursor around and don’t know when/if he’s clicking the mouse or pressing a key or anything. I’m sure the developer knows exactly what all the tools are and how to use them, but how about helping out users that are new to editing fonts.
It’s a great app, and I was hesitent to pay $15 for it because even the description in the app store is almost nonexistent. I basically took a chance that it wasn’t complete garbage since it’s the only font editor in the app store. Now that I’ve played with it, I would have paid $50 or $60 for it. But it would sure be nice to know how to use it. Would easily be a 5 star app if it was a LOT more user friendly.
What language is this?
I am in the United States. I just bought this app for$15.00. It is unusable - The menus are unresponsive, and I do not even have any idea what language is being displayed in. Please help! And please post instructions for obtaining a refund.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
