Does VTT display the hints in a hinted font?

I know that VTT won’t let me edit hints already in a font. But if I just open a hinted font and look at the glyphs does VTT render the font as it is hinted? Or does it show the font as it would appear with no hinting?


  • VTT preview will show the compiled hinting, which means you can apply options to review different kinds of rendering.
  • Fabulous!
  • Note: if you want to check hinting for lower resolutions, it really helps to be looking at VTT on a lower resolution monitor. On a 5K screen, the smaller ppem sizes are too tiny to be properly reviewed. You can scale the resolution in VTT, of course, but then you're not seeing device ppem rendering.
