How To: Make Your Own Font

For those of you who have ever wanted to create your own font, here is how to. 

 I used a program called "High-Logic Font Creator", seems complicated, but it's quite easy to use actually.

First, download the program. Link here (8mb)

I decided to use my handwriting, so first i wrote down all the letters I wanted to use on a piece of paper.

 Then I seperated each letter as a picture file. I used paint. This can take some time, but you'll get a rythm and will do it fast enough. 

 Now I used the program to add each letter to the correct picture.
I used the program to genereate a version of the letter.

The next step was to then set the correct margins for each letter. You must adjust the height (for captial or small), and width.

When you're done, you must save it as a font. It will create a .tff file. 

Now, you must add this file to your font directory. You can locate it from the Control-Panel. 

This is the result:

 The result was bad, maybe its my handwriting. There you have it. Enjoy your own person font!
