I'm fairly new to the typography community, although I have been using FontStruct for a while. I'd like to move on to non-modular typography but I'm not sure which font maker to buy. Should I use FontLab, FontCreator, or FontForge? Or is there an even better one?
Some requirements are:
OpenType ligature support
Anti-aliasing /supersampling options (not necessarily ClearType)
FULL Unicode support, including private use
Some things I'd like:
Macros for adding diacritical marks, super/subscript, &c.
Ability to export to SVG
PS: I have tried making a few glyphs in SVG, but it was very slow and not visual in any way. I'd like a program that doesn't require this.
