Hello! First of all, let me tell you that I'm a total newbie in font editing/cretion.
I've downloaded a font that does not have some special characters (áéíóúÁÉÍÓÚüÜ), I'm in the process of creating these with FontForge, but any operation I do takes a ridiculous amount of time. I'm talking about 30+ minutes for selecting a few nodes or moving said nodes.
Is this normal? My PC is not cutting edge tech, but still I figure it shouldn't take THAT long...
Ok... I think I know what the problem is. I do not have a solution though. The font I'm editing (Cash Currency) seems to be ridiculously complex. Each character has a crazy amount of nodes.
So, the question still applies: Any suggestions?
BTW: I tried the evaluation copy of Font Creator. It works lightning fast, but since I cannot spend $80 in this, I am unable to generate the font file.
I just downloaded a free version of that font. It does seem to have a
few more points than necessary, but I can select and move them without
any delay at all. It seems just like any other font. I'm using a 4 year
old Intel computer with 32 bit Linux. Fontforge version 20120731.
This probably doesn't help much,

Thanks for the reply. I wonder if you, or anyone else reading this, can do the last modifications for me and send me the file.
What is already done:
What is missing:
ÁÍÓÚ - These are just copies of AIOU.
É - It is done, but I think the tilde should be moved down a little. Just a tiny bit.
üÜ - I created the two dots by copying the dot (.), duplicating it, and rescaling them.
