Illustrator Internal Font Maker
I wanted to request Adobe Illustrator to be able to create and export a font file on its own. I know illustrator can export file types for font creation. I would love to not have to jump to other software to finish making a font as well as be able to make the font automatically be added to my library for use in other Adobe Cloud apps or share/upload to Stock.
The reason I make this request is because I want to streamline the typography/font creation without struggling to export to other software. When I make fonts it's for use in game texturing or film. I have a lot of different needs that adobe CC fills, I would like to not hop to or pay for a third party tool when I made the font in Adobe CC Illustrator and will be using it in all other Adobe CC Apps.
Peter, there is a commercial extension you can use for this task — FontSelf (https://www.fontself.com).
However, building fonts is not something everyone wants to do, so having a specialized tool (and it is) built-in in Illustrator from the box might seem as an overkill for those users.
Let us see if it gets enough votes though.
