All I what I saw are premium software. The only software I found at the lowest price is (FontBird)[https://birdfont.org/] = $10. But I don't know, I downloaded the free version (which doesn't support color fonts) and it seems to me that the software is not maintained well or glitchy! - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
FontForge is the best free font editor right now, although there are some others in development. A great place to start learning is to read the Design with FontForge ebook, which will quickly teach you a lot of the basics that can be applied no matter which font editing software you're using. If you're struggling with FontForge, you can also try BirdFont which is a bit simpler. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
Besides, for adding the ligatures I use Birdfont for Linux. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
More seriously, not really. Well maybe you can try Birdfont but usually FontForge is regarded as the most complete free editor. Birdfont looks more simple so it might work for you, I don’t know much about it. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
d/l fontforge or birdfont or whatever glyph editor you prefer, I mention these because both are GPL and can import SVGs directly; now embed wilber in a font of your choice and volia! You're now posess the (possibly) first wilber font glyph. Just don't redistribute it and try to claim it as yours, because nacho cheese! (well its possible you could be Tuomas, but I doubt it.). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
I have fairly limited experience with it, but Birdfont should do the trick. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
If you look through the posts here, you'll find a number of suggestions for font-making software, including http://www.glyphrstudio.com and https://birdfont.org. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
Depends on the platform! To start out, maybe check out the free web tool Glyphr: www.glyphrstudio.com If you’re iPad first, I’d pick up iFont Maker ($7.99) https://apps.apple.com/us/app/ifontmaker/id377381670 — Fontise is maybe more popular but not as good. On a desktop, check out Birdfont: https://birdfont.org. Please know that font design is a pretty big PITA and my guess is the color-changing stickers we’ve... - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
u/FasterThanHouses shared the programme BirdFont on this sub a while back. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
Thanks! This one took a bit of time, but there's a lot of free apps that can be used to make fonts pretty easily—web apps like fontstruct, calligraphr, or glyphr, plus desktop apps like fontforge or birdfont (though both of those are a big step up from fontstruct or calligraphr, and glyphr's somewhere in the middle). - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
I used BirdFont . I like the grid better than any of the fancier programs I tried where I could barely figure out how to draw a straight line. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
I'm using Birdfont and I changed the PostScript Name, Name, Full Name, and Unique Identifier fields and saved it as a new font and my system recognized it as a different font. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
I've never done it myself, but some quick poking around I did find Birdfont. Looks like it may do what you're looking for, but you'll need to purchase the commercial version. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
