    Ben, thanks for the tutorial! I tried it and got my handwriting created as
    a font. A problem I’m having, however, is that the letters appear very
    small and awkwardly spaced (i.e. there is too much space between
    characters). I used the same metrics you used in the video. Any ideas what
    I need to do to fix this??

    Very nice tutorial, Ben! Just tried it yesterday and already made my first
    font since 2008: My own handwriting 🙂 It’s still in the making, but
    compared to the other tools out there, Glyphs is so much fun and you can
    work lightning fast! Guess I’m into font design again. Thanks a lot for
