What software are you using? FontLab? Fontographer? Glyph? – Scott Apr 17 '14 at 6:29
Hi there, and welcome to GD! As Scott says, we need to know what software you are using. What you have created the characters in? Scott hints at some SW that will help you achieve what you want. – Benteh Apr 17 '14 at 10:47

You would need specific software to make an actually usable and quality font. I don't think that anyone that's serious about fonts uses anything else than FontLab or Glyphs on OSX.

And to get help creating a really good font I'd suggest joining a great forum like Typophile. There are many experts and world renown typographers there that give practical advice and help to others. They'll give you constructive critique of your work and help you get the most out of it.
