    Fontlab is very good and is the comprehensive solution for font foundries. But it is dificult to do complex opentype features.

    Fontographer is the easiest font software but incomplete. (no opentype features)

    The really best software is Fontmaster from DTL but it is much more expensive and dificult to use.

    FontForge is a very good program and it is FREE, but it is more dificult to use them Fontlab or Fontographer.

    The best way to make opentype features in font is using Microsoft VOLT (Visual Opentype Layout Tool) and it is FREE.

    Glyphs

    I just scanned the posts, didn't see any using this newer software called Glyphs. It's mac only, but seems to be a lot more modern, less clunky than Fontlab. I've only made font in there, and it took some reading a lot of their forum posts/guides to get going, but I liked it. They also have a web fonts only version that's cheaper.

    FontLab seems to be the go-to tool. I have also heard good things about Fontographer

    By the way, any here who nowadays still uses the DTL Fontmaster Suite? I would really like to hear some opinions about this expensive software that sadly only works on Windows systems. I went on the website and I really like its structure in modules. It has quite a long and important history.
    From the site you can download a "light" version with some restriction. Is it really more powerful than the other software on the market?

    This is really useful. I have an old G3 that I've been using my font software on as I haven't found a program I like as much. Hopefully now I can take the plunge and find a more suitable program.
