Thanks. I had seen fontforge on sourceforge, and while the developers say its for windows, I don’t really want to try and figure out which file.
I amtrying out Manutius as I type this. It looks pretty interesting, and since I know what paths, etc. are in photoshop/gimp its pretty easy to learn and has control point editing (like vertices) since its Java it should also be cross platform. It looks like it can only save in .pbf format though, so I am going to have to find a .pbf (type 1) to .ttf (true type converter) but that shouldn’t be too hard.
Thanks a lot.
