Is there any way to create real font set from the vector shapes created in Illustrator CS6?

I have a set of the vector shapes - 26 letters of English alphabet, I can copy every letter to make title etc, but I wanted to create a real font to type on keyboard as usual.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You're obviously as new to font-making as a lot of us. Someone informed on this topic will point out numerous factors that you must consider and you'll realise font making is actually quite complex. In short, there's no copy and paste method for creating a font, that's only the first part; you then have to specify letter spacing, kerning and a whole host of other technical font stuff. Additionally, you may want to consider that fonts consist of more than letters; you will need to create punctuation and any special characters you may need. –  Dom Feb 9 '14 at 13:24

Illustrator can not create fonts.

You need font editing softer to create fonts.




There are others as well.

i meant can I import vector forms to these or other progs? –  Ilan Feb 9 '14 at 18:48
Yes. As long as they are simple, flat vector shapes. –  Scott Feb 9 '14 at 18:53
so, can you provide any way to do that? which program of mentioned can import vector? –  Ilan Feb 9 '14 at 18:57
All of them can import simply via copy/paste. You should experiment with which app is most intuitive to you and fits your budget. –  Scott Feb 9 '14 at 19:11
