Buyer’s Guide: New Product Pages

Our product pages have changed. Now it’s easier to test, view, and find related styles within a family. Here two key features to be aware of and we’ll use Klavika by Process Type Foundry as an example.

The sample text tool bar is now under the Specimen tab. Preview short text in different sizes and colors!

Buying Options allows you to see the available formats, included and related styles, plus the option to add multiple styles of a family to your cart.

Buyer’s Guide: OpenType Feature Controls

Last week we went over the Character Set tab and how you can view OpenType features that are available within a font. But did you know you can test OpenType features in the Custom Sample Tool Bar? To access the additional controls, click on the gear icon located on any page that shows renders.

Then read up on how to use OpenType Feature Controls here .

FontBook Features: 5x Classier

Now that we’ve unleashed the FontBook iPad app on the world, we want to take some time to show you all the goodies packed inside. Watch for our FontBook Features posts throughout the coming weeks. Also, remember if you have general questions about app, we’ll keep our FAQs documented here.

As Yves Peters recently explained with his interview with the app development team on The FontFeed, one of the unique features of the app its robust classification system. With the involvement of type historian, typographer, author, and professor for Typography and Communikation Design at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar, Indra Kupferschmid, the team developed an impressive system of highlighting broad type categories and their subgroups.

Clicking into the “Classes” section of the app you’ll initially see the seven main type categories: Sans, Serif, Slab Serif, Blackletter, Script, Display, and Pi & Symbols. But dig in, by tapping a class, and you’ll find each class has five subclasses within each. It’s easy to get lost for hours checking out each one.
