How to make a font with Adobe Illustrator?

I have recently created my own font/typeface with Adobe Illustrator, and I would like to use it as a real font (e.g I would like to use it as I type something).

Is this possible in Adobe Illustrator or would I need a different software?

If so what program would be good for creating a font?


To create a font, you need a font editing program. FontCreator is quite popular and inexpensive. FontForge is an open source font editor, if you’re up to the somewhat dense documentation. FontLab has a utility called TypeTool, a little more expensive but has a good reputation.
