Useable, but... 3 stars by bolgwrad Oct 09, 2014 (Read all my 20 reviews)
Why do developers bother to create their own navigation interface? Is it because it's easier to go cross-platform? Do M charge to use the Explorer Dlls? Is it simply showing off? Birdfont seems to have come on a lot since the last review - but I've been using Windows since v3: I don't want to have to learn a new navigation interface just to try out a font creator/editor - it just isn't worth my time when there are alternatives available. With the normal Explorer interface, Birdfont might be really good, for free. With this interface, it's just a nuisance. show Review details
Early stage of development 1 stars by cfstein367 Apr 20, 2014 (Read all my 2 reviews)
As BirdFont is still under development, users should keep in mind its low version number, so using it in my opinion basically means beta-testing. I tried versions 0.35, .36, and .37. None of them was able to cover my expectations in terms of making a useable font. My intention was to modify an existing font I had made myself before, having used several different programs. 0.35 and .36 did build my modifications into a new font, but under Win7pro this new font didn't show proper preface in Word or Wordpad nor show within text. Instead Arial was used. In LibreOffice, however, it worked as expected. 0.37 suddenly claims my font is not under SIL Open Font License and refuses building. Since program's documentation still is very basic, there's no chance to find out how to modify licensing information within the font, leaving BirdFont behind useless for me. show Review details
