Best way to do italics automatically?

I'm still using Fontlab 5, FontRemixTools Slanter but when I slant a Geometric Sans it generates some contrast.
Do you know anything better? Thank you!

  • Thank you James. I don't want to use Glyphs, because it has some compatibility issues with Fontlab 5. I  will clean up after the action, but I'm looking for an action that helps me speed up my work.

    PS: Honestly, who are you to say who should or shouldn't be designing type...

    There are scripts that should get your data in and out of Fontlab quite safely.

    The Cursivy option uses the stem setting to calculate the amount of correction. So if it is correcting to much, on not enough, change the stem settings in the masters.

    I apologise, Fernando. I was in a bitchy mood this morning.
  • No problem @James Puckett !

    @Georg Seifert
    I'm using glyphs for my new typefaces, but this one is a work in a group of 3 and not everyone uses Glyphs yet. Do you know which script specificly? Thank you
  • It is not a script but a build into the transform filter. 
    You could do the cursivying on your machine for all glyphs at once.
