OpenType Demystified

On Demand

Thank you for joining us!


What’s on your wish list for the font of the future? Room for more characters, including small caps, old style figures, swashes and ligatures, and maybe even some ornaments? Perhaps a font format that works on both a Mac and a PC? Maybe even a font with a brain that knows when to use beginning and ending swashes, and other case-sensitive characters? Well, brace yourself, because the future is NOW! Topics covered include exactly:

  • What exactly is OpenType
  • How OpenType differs from Type1 and TrueType
  • What are the extra features of an OpenType font
  • How to access its features
  • Availability of OpenType fonts

Join Ilene Strizver for this Webinar as she explains, demystifies and demonstrates this “smart” new font technology and shows how it can benefit designers.
