Illustrator Font Creation Plugin

Dear all,

 

I know exporting a font that I created on my own is not an original function from Illustrator, it requires a plug-in to do. I was wondering if there is any recommended free plug-in for Illustrator from the Creative Cloud suite that I can use. I saw a lot of people recommend Fontself, but it requires a one-time purchase without any trial. I'm just starting to learn how to do some typography, so I'm not sure if I want to purchase it at this point (maybe will do once I know there is more use of it in my career), therefore, I would love to start with some trials.

 

Thank you.

Karen

Fontself is a pretty inexpensive plugin (one time $39 fee for Illustrator, $59 for the Illustrator & Photoshop bundle). Stand-alone font editors such as FontLab or Glyphs cost a lot more (Glyphs is Mac-only). There is a decent number of YouTube videos that provide a good overview of Fontself and some how-to tips.

I don't think that there is another plugin for Illustrator.

You have to either use online services or other apps.
