    I used Fontlab, but I think that Glyphs is more intuitive and easier. Now I'm using Glyphs and it's much faster.

    Does anyone know a good program for Windows?

    Glyphs & Robofont look amazing both, but Mac only...

    I think that there is nothing better than FontLab Studio.

    That's a pity - I like it, but the usability of most Mac Programs are way better imho

    I use High-Logic FontCreator or Font Forge. Never tried the others but definately want to get my hands on FontLab soon so I can group some of my fonts into families with submenus to save space in my font menus.

    Thanks for pointing me! I've used fontographer quite a bit but really dislike the FontLab suite - this looks much nicer.

    I usually start work in illustrator and then move on to fontlab.
