    Grouping Fonts into Families [HELP]

    I am trying to group these two fonts > http://ge.tt/3CNCmw81/v/0?c into a single font family with the sub menu using Font Forge or High-Logic FontCreator. Trying to save space in my font menu in applications like PS. I know there is a way to do this with FontLab and a tutorial on this site but I do not have access to this program. I thought I figured it out and could do it but have not been able to get it to work. It always asks me to overwrite the other file or just doesn't work and shows as a separate font.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    I am pretty sure that Fontlab has a "merge into family" feature (don't remember the name)

    So if you are not making it work with any of the tools mentioned, Fontlab would be an option.

    I would suggest using the FontLab on Win or Glyphs on Mac. Those are pro tools which will allow you to do whatever you want - even merge fonts into family.

    I will have to get my hands on FontLab in the New Year then, play around and spend some time going through my collection. Be nice to combine some of my older fonts.

    thx ill have to chk that program out, just been sorting collection for now... havent had time to purchase any other software to combine yet. is it free or how much does it run?

    Sorting n organizing i am just using typograf but looking to grab a explorer pro soon. Typograf is great for looking n setting up sets to load from taskbar but fontexplorerx pro lets you load program font caches anytime while programs like photoshop are still open so grabbing that this week.
