I am currently using fontLab, and after painstakingly creating 5 glyphs for my first Arabic font (and first font overall) I can't help but wonder, is there an easier way?
I'm a flash designer, and im wondering, since flash is vector based, and so is fontlab, is there perhaps someway of designing the glyphs in flash and then importing them into fontLab?
I'm guessing not, but I honestly think the flash method of creating outlines (using the line tool) is much more user friendly than the method in fontLab, though that's probably a biased point of view (since I've been using flash for close on 6 years now and just started with fontLabs).
So, to get to the point, is there an easier way to design glyphs?
Even if I were somehow able to import a bitmap and have it in the background just to use as a guide, that would be helpful.
So, if anyone knows of such a method, sharing would be appreciated.
