I'm looking for a free way to convert the font I've just created in illustrator into an OTF or True Type file. thanks
There may be a problem with the Glyphs Mini recommendation...
“No UFO support, no import of EPS or SVG files.”
Bigger problem: not free. FontForge is free - is it the only one? But AFAIK it's a bear to get to work right.
Caprice, if you can come up with $100 thishttp://www.fontlab.com/font-editor/typetool/
is worth it. And if you're a student the FontLab people have deals for you.
BTW, you haven't actually created a font yet. :-) Just a bunch of letterforms. The dark side awaits...
Moving from Illustrator to Glyphs is covered in the Glyphs blog.
Glyphs mini supports copy+paste from Illustrator, just not whole Illustrator-file import. Know before you speak.
Know before you speak? Hey, bub: this is the internet!
