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.

  • Update: You can now make a font directly from Illustrator & Photoshop with Fontself fontself.com 😉

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?

  • Yes. As long as they are simple, flat vector shapes.

  • All of them can import simply via copy/paste. You should experiment with which app is most intuitive to you and fits your budget.
