    Does anyone know what or if there is an application out for font creation. I use to use Fontographer back in school and Macromedia never bothered continuing it.

    Any suggestions....? I found an application called FontLab, http://www.font.to, not sure how good it is.

    I am trying to make a handwritten font, I know of this service, http://www.fontifier.com but would rather do it myself... although for the price it might not be a bad idea to try... has any one tried fontifier?

    Thanks for any suggestion. :)

    To the best of my knowledge, FontLab is the only font creation application available in a MacOS X-native version. Macromedia still lists Fontographer 4.1.3. I am not holding my breath until it gets ported to MacOS X. However, it does run under MacOS 9.2.2.

    I too agree with MisterMe If Fontographer ever makes it to OS X I'm there!

    Here's a few options though:

    some of these pages took for ever to load, maybe it's me, maybe not.
