I don't know anything about coding, programming or if this is even possible, but can you make a simple program that lets you draw and choose the letter you would like to represent?

There are font creator that start like that but to create a good font you need to far beyond the just drawing of characters.  There is a lot of additional characterisitcs that must be defined for a font to look good when scaled, when certain characters are next to each other, when made bold or italics, and others.

Basically, creating a font is a very complicated, time consuming process.  Of course when I say this I'm talking about creating a professional, flexible font.

Thank you for the leads. I do understand that much more goes into it than simply drawing it, but I wanted something simple.  smiley  Again, thanks.

I saw a free Microsoft program, My Font Tool, listed on Road to Know Where!. It might be something like what you're looking for.

Very possibly, I haven't tried it myself, just remembered seeing it. I wonder if Mizraim is still around?
