Font Editing/modification

I'm, new to this site, so hopefully I'm posting in the correct area.

I'm looking for someone that is well versed in FontCreator to modify a font and output a .TTF format. for a simple small job.

    Why are you particularly interested in FontCreator if the goal is a .TTF?

    Isn't FontCreator using ttf as it's native format?

    You need to be sure the license if the font you are modifying permits you to do that. What font is it?

    Only older versions of FontCreator prior to Version 7.0.1 (released 21st June 2013) used TTF as its native format. Since version 7.0, FontCreator has had its own native font project format *.fcp. 

    Anyone who already has a license for FontCreator would find a font project file more useful than an OTF or TTF as it includes details like guidelines, notes, and export settings. 

    The latest version of FontCreator can export TTF, OTF, CFF Outlines, WOFF 1.0, or WOFF 2.0 from the same project file, so the OP could then make minor modifications, and re-export with or without hinting, etc., as required.

    Ah, good to know about the latest version!
  • Is there a Mac version planned?
  • I don't know of any plans for a MAC version of FontCreator, but apparently it runs fine on WINE
