Suppose that I have a font in a modestly popular format (
.otf, etc.), and I have the legal rights to modify it. As it stands, it is a normal font with different charaters (glyphs?) varying in widths and spacings. How would I go about turning said font into a monospaced font (e.g. all characters are same dimensions, etc.)?
If possible, are there any automated tools that can do some of the guesswork for you? (The results don't have to be perfect.) The font may be large (many characters), and editing it could be tedious.
Any suggestions on the problem are much appreciated! :)
Disclaimer: Sorry if this is considered a simple howto, but Google has very little information on the subject, and for a programmer that doesn't deal with graphics or fonts much, it sure isn't simple. Also, sorry if my terminology is off... :P
