Adobe has no dedicated font creation tool. The typical workflow is to draw the contours in Illustrator and then import them into a font creation tool like the free FontForge or commercial offerings like FontLab/ Fontographer.

Calligraphr says it offers TTF and OTF files. If you can't access these, perhaps you should contact them.

I think the simplest way to create fonts in Illustrator is using Fontself . It's not free but is inexpensive and easy to pick up.

I tried using calligraphr yesterday but had trouble sharing the font once it was created. I posted the link on a blog and people were having trouble importing the font and once I got it to work for myself the special characters were just blank boxes. I will try contacting them or emailing for support. Also will try fontself, thank you so much for the reply and help.
