DTL OTMa­ster (OTM) jest wysoce wyra­fi­no­waną apli­ka­cją do prze­glą­da­nia, edy­cji i zmiany tabel i obry­sów w fon­tach Open­Type (. OTF i. TTF), fon­tach True Type (. TTF) i Tru­eType Col­lec­tion (. TTC), w tym dwu­baj­to­wych fon­tach Open­Type CID ‚ CJK (chiń­ski, kore­ań­ski, japoński) i zło­żo­nych pismach (hinduskich, arabskich itp.).

Ove­rview of DTL OTMa­ster
DTL OTMa­ster reve­als the secrets of your Open­Type and Tru­eType fonts without your having to slog thro­ugh text dumps or binary code. It makes the edi­ting of tables easy and smo­oth using its gra­phi­cal user interface.

Fur­ther­more, it comes with a built-in Glyph Edi­tor for pro­ofing and edi­ting con­to­urs or even dra­wing gly­phs from scratch. The kern Table Vie­wer pro­vi­des a ker­ning class edi­tor for pro­ofing and refi­ning the ker­ning, and the GSUB/GPOS Table Vie­wer lets you visu­ally test (and in case of GPOS also adjust) these Open­Type Lay­out tables.

One of the most remar­ka­ble func­tions in OTM, is the option to import and export Open­Type Lay­out featu­res files. During import OTM com­pi­les the Open­Type Lay­out featu­res with the AFDKO (Adobe Font Deve­lop­ment Kit for Open­Type) syn­tax (.fea) and pro­du­ces binary Open­Type Lay­out tables.

DTL OTMa­ster — the tech­ni­cal Open­Type edi­tor. A per­fect font tool for pro­fes­sio­nal font users, type desi­gners, as well as software ven­dors and developers.

In-depth, non-invasive

Exa­mine, report, print

Why does your Euro cha­rac­ter keep tur­ning up in the wrong place like a tuxedo at a Hal­lo­ween party? Maybe he got lost because of a lousy cmap? Check it out with OTM’s table vie­wer and get him to the wed­ding on time.

DTL OTMa­ster (OTM) is an excel­lent tool for looking deep into an Open­Type font’s hid­den treasures.

Add, copy or edit a glyph

Your client’s spe­ci­fied font has an amper­sand that looks like pig’s entra­ils. No need to haul out the meat cle­aver big font edi­tor. A lit­tle judi­cious sur­gery with OTM’s glyph edi­tor can solve the pro­blem in minutes.

When the font you’re using is mis­sing a glyph or an exi­sting glyph has an inap­pro­priate shape, OTM allows you to fix this without bre­aking or chan­ging the font’s ori­gi­nal hin­ting, ker­ning, or Open­Type Lay­out features.

Test and edit Open­Type Lay­out features

If you’ve cooked up or disco­ve­red a recipe for a great feature set you don’t want it to disap­pear after you’ve served it up just once. Keep the for­mula aro­und for future font feasts by expor­ting a .fea file from OTM.

Swa­shes, small caps, marks, cur­sive attach­ment — what’s going on?

Fix fami­lies, line­spa­cing, encoding

Your pretty swash font looks like it got a buz­z­cut: the tall gly­phs are all clip­ped at the top. Like a bad part the line­spa­cing is dif­fe­rent on Mac and Win­dows? Or you wan­ted an Afro but the font appe­ars in the font sec­tion for Greek fonts, altho­ugh it inc­lu­des only two Greek let­ters? The Light style appe­ars after the Regu­lar style in the font menu, or does not appear at all?

Last-minute adju­st­ments

Your Open­Type font is per­fect, but… Oops, you’ve for­got­ten to update the ver­sion string. Or there’s an Open­Type glyph that you’d like to access direc­tly from the key­bo­ard. Or the font’s under­line is too thin. Or the font’s antia­lia­sing is not quite like you’d like it to be. OTM lets you per­form last-minute chan­ges without you needing to rebu­ild the font from sour­ces — great, espe­cially if you have a com­plex pro­duc­tion workflow.

Is it the font? Is it the app?

If you’re a software deve­lo­per or ven­dor, DTL OTMa­ster will allow you to exa­mine fonts and iden­tify whe­ther the pro­blem is cau­sed by a buggy font, or by buggy software. Deve­lo­ped with glo­ba­li­za­tion and inter­na­tio­na­li­za­tion in mind, OTM pro­vi­des deep insi­ght into the state-of-the art Unicode-based Open­Type / ISO/IEC 14496–22 font technology.
