Loading to nowhere

I made a whole font, everything are clean Vectorshapes, but if i want to import it into fontself it starts loading und loading and loading

Hello Halbhand, welcome to this forum.

You can only open .otf which was made with fontself maker. all other font’s can’t be imported or opened by fontself.

But there is a trick:

  1. Type your Alphabet in Illustrator let’s say in 30 pt size.
  2. Place a guide line under the glyphs and name it baseline.
  3. Create a black filled square as dummy with the size 70 % of the font size, 0.7 * 30 = 21 pt.
  4. Select the text from step 1 and use my javascript »Font-Outline-with-Names« on it. It will make outlines of the letters AND keep the names.
  5. Open fontself maker ans click on NEW.
  6. Drag the guideline and the dummy first into the window of fontself.
  7. Drag the guideline and glyphs into the window of fontself.
    Done. You will get your font in fontself to change kerning and so.
