How can I add original characters to an existing font?

Asked by ezraglenn (3502points) May 9th, 2008

I am interested in creating a few new punctuation marks for a paper I am writing, which will ideally be printed in Times New Roman. If I design the characters in some sort of vector-based program (I know how to do that) how can I add them to a font? Or even just create a new font, if necessary, and add the regular TNR characters to the font?
Is this even possible?...
(How do I even make a new font?!?!)

I know there are programs that let you make and edit fonts like Fontographer.

I love typography is probably your best resource.

Also, use Times over Times New Roman. It’s a little more refined.

you have to remap the chars in fontographer using the outlined version from illustrator. You should create a new font
