When I install a font, then if I look for it among the fonts inside the word program, there are just question marks.

Sorry, I added a "replay". Maybe it hasn't accepted or I made a mistake when I clicked on "submit".

Concerning my question, I don’t understand. I don’t know if it’s the same problem.
I don’t even understand where I should have to click. I open, for example a glyph, then? When I do it, I see that (look at the pic).

Are there any mistakes?
I can see the font name, but not the sample letters for each created font.
I’ve the 5.6 version of Font Creator.

Have you added any outlines to the characters?

A text font must have at least some text characters in it to display the font name.

Watch the video on Drawing Contours.

I don't have version 5.6 installed. Drawing contours in earlier versions was more limited, but it was similar at least in ver 6.5. Postscript outlines were not supported until recent versions.

Otherwise, refer to the Help manual, My First Font.

You can also copy/paste glyphs from an OpenSource font if your font is going to be OpenSource too. Otherwise, you need to create your own, which is the better option as they will then match the Hebrew glyphs for Caps Height and weight, general design.
