Turn Handwriting into Font with Microsoft Font Maker

There are so many professional font creator applications like Font Forge that allow you to manually edit each and every character or symbol included in a font. But if you are not looking for a professional font creator and just want to create your own personalized font based on your handwriting then you may want to consider Microsoft Font Maker. It is a Windows app that is available from Windows app store for Windows 10 computers.

The app is extremely simple and does not bother with any fine details included in the font architecture – distance between its various parts, type of corners (round or sharp), type of endings (long or stretched out) and more. You do not have to worry about any of that – you do not even have to know anything about the font editing or creation process. You simply have to use the standard drawing tablet to write the letters and phrases in your handwriting.

Microsoft Font Maker

Microsoft Font Maker creates fonts for you in three steps – first you have to write all the character set usually found in a font, second you have to write a few phrases and third you have to adjust the font size and finally it creates the font for you. The font is saved as a TTF (true type) font file.

You can cannot use a touch screen or touchpad to write in this app. You must have a stylus and drawing tablet for better control over the handwriting. If you have bought a new stylus for your PC, you should practice with it for a week or two before using it to create the fonts.

Conclusion: Microsoft Font Maker is a tool for creating fonts yourself using own handwriting. The app works in Windows 10 only and makes the creation of new fonts the easiest job in the world.
