Said about FontLab as an alternative


The ultimate font creator, glyphs is made for ease of use while Fontlab is the most used software by professionals. Of course there is a slightly higher learning curve but its completely worth it for all the control you get.

FontLab VI support modern features such as OpenType Variations (variable fonts) and color fonts. It has a modern interface, and supports Mac and Windows interface conventions instead of using X-Windows like FontForge. It is under active development instead of being mostly in maintenance mode.
