The general workflow is to open your existing fonts, save your working files as .vfb and export new OpenType fonts. There are quite a few potential issues you need to check for before doing this though.

I would suggest you read the manual in detail.

(And to be cynical, I'm not convinced that someone who would spend US$649 on an application of this complexity wouldn't have worked through this issue).

  • thanks! this "Font \l_tmpb_font has only 8 fontdimen parameters" error what could be caused? – Aurelius Jul 19 '12 at 16:33
  • No idea, sorry. – e100 Jul 20 '12 at 10:13
  • don't worry! the last thing, tell me if this workflow is right to exchange characters between the Asana Math and the Latin Modern Math Fonts. 1: open the .otf file in fontlab 2: copy the character from Asana Math that i want to exchange and paste it into the Latin Modern Math in the corresponding position, (on the same character but in the Latin Modern Math font) 3: save the modified font as .vbf file 4: open it in fontlab and using the generate font command generate the .otf file than rigth click on it and install. – Aurelius Jul 21 '12 at 13:49
  • Did you really spend US$649 on the software? – e100 Jul 21 '12 at 16:19
