Re: Whats on the work bench.

I use High Logic FontCreator. Sort of.

I actually draw the letters/numbers in Illustrator and then copy & paste
into FontCreator. Then I adjust the scale and letter spacing and I'm done.
Yes I should just create the stuff directly FontCreator but I've using
Illustrator for this over ten years now and just am reluctant (i.e.,
stubborn) to learn a different method at 69.

The cost of FontCreator has increased since I bought mine but then it was
$75 for the personal use license and $150 for the general publishing
license. I have to personal use license and it works just like any other
font. It installs right to the Windows Font folder and shows up in any
program that uses that folder. So it is available in Illustrator, Photoshop,
CorelDRAW, Publisher, Word etc. I just can't publish it to sell it to

A 1998 version of Fontogopher that I purchased years ago very cheaply (less
than $25). Current price is $400. First scanned in images, then cleaned up
in Photoshop because they were drawn on black graph paper, created bit maps
and then to Fontogopher. First time I've tried doing this and I'm very
pleased with the progress.

Gary, What program do you use to design your fonts?
