learn these basic principles and you’re ready to go. 

1.

The SmartX(sx)

The SmartX system enable the connection of all font’s characters

SXs are smart points that are mutual to all the font glyphs. By connecting the Skeleton path to the SXs you define which parts of the characters will be modified at the same time.

2.

The Skeleton

The Skeleton is the center line of the character

The Skeleton eliminates the need to draw the character’s Outline, Simply draw the character’s center line and the Outline will be generated automatically. Change the Outline width of the entire font with a simple slider.

3.

The Matrix

The Matrix Is a fluid grid associated with the SmartXs

The blue lined grid enables moving the SmartXs easily and changing the font’s global and internal proportions. Drag the blue dots on the left and bottom to change the Matrix lines position.

4.

Selecting

Easy multiple character selecting

FontArk’s Character selecting method enables fast and flexible edit of a single, groups or the entire set of characters.
