Simplepolator

Simplepolator allows you to interpolate compatible glyphs in the same font, without leaving FontLab nor interrupting your workflow.

Simply select two compatible glyphs and run the macro:
Five new glyphs will be automatically created, allowing you to choose the best variation.

Making it super-easy to apply the Gunnlaugur SE Briem's method:
"How to make mistakes:
Trial and error are a waste of your time. Instead, you should make deliberate and systematic missteps.
Make variations, and choose among them. That’s how you find your best option.
You will discard all your variations except one. But the rejects do have a purpose. They get you one winner"
