We are happy to announce that we are now on Fontstand, a new way of licensing fonts. Fontstand is a macOS and iOS app that allows you to try fonts for free or rent them by the month for just a fraction of the regular price. We think that following the same path you will reach only the same destination, for that reason Fontstand and its vision look like a turning point. We are honored of being part of this group of independent type foundries trying to rethink the font licensing. Now you can find some of the most popular families from Emtype on the app...

BBox Guides is a very simple python tool that we developed for its use in RoboFont. It is quite useful to get the middle of the contours with precision, it works with the current glyph or with the selected contour. There is a clear panel with two buttons on it, by clicking on (+) a bounding box and center local guides appear for a selected contour or the whole current glyph if nothing is selected. Meanwhile, the (-) option remove all the local guides...
