    I've tried a few. Fontlab is the best so far.

    I wish LetraStudio hadn't disappeared decades ago; I loved that software and it's interface. Glyphs is very good, and FontLab seems to be pretty much the standard now. Pity about FontLabs interface.

    What do people think of Glyphs? I'm looking at creating some fonts from various illustrator files. I heard that Fontlab has issues importing vector art sometimes.

    FontLab is the best imo but has a very high learning curve.

    Fontlab is great! But if you wanted something online, fontstruct.com is really self-explanatory and doesn't take much time!

    I used fontlab and fontographer, and i recomend both.
    But more important is what you design, i recomend you this book

    Counterpunch, 2nd edition: Making Type in the Sixteenth Century Designing Typefaces Now
    and
    Fontographer: Type by Design

    Very useful

    Robofont is supposed to be the best. But there is a learning curve from what I hear

    There are three possibilities : Fontlab, Glyphs and Robofont. Robofont is the newest but looks very good. I just tried the test version but people seem to say this is the future.
    Glyphs works with only one window. Kerning and drawing happen at the same place, making it very intuitive. Plus, the company makes it's own tutorials so it is very easy to get started.
    Fontlab is less intuitive but more complete imo. Although, it doesn't always works that well on Mac, I think this one is better on Windows.

    I second the Fontographer: Type by Design book, even if you do not use Fontographer. If you see it used, buy it. I have seen old copies go for as much as $200

    Leslie Carbaga's book "Learn Fontlab Fast" is far better than the fontlab manual. You can find it used or buy it directly from Leslie himself.
