The Good:

You can edit or design a font. You have a baseline/left and rightside/ capheight so you don't have to worry about where you place it.

The Bad:

It needs a lot of practice to really make what you want. It's not very easy to use.

The Bottomline:

It is very useful for designers, because they can design their own font.

Overall Rating:

4

    Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?

    There are no adds, or surveys etc. On the webpage there is only a link to give a donation, but that's not put in your face. So it's really free.
