5. FontLab is now ready to create the actual Mac TrueType font. Click File > Build Suitcase....

6. In the Compose Suitcase dialog, select "Macintosh® TrueType" from the "Select destination format" drop-down box.

7. Press the "Options" button for TrueType export options.

8. In FontLab, you can generate fonts using the encoding that is displayed in the font window. In a previous step, we setup the font with the correct encoding. In the Export Options dialog select the option, "Use current Font Window encoding while building the Mac Fonts" (circled below). Click "OK" when done.

9. Next, select a destination folder for the font. Navigate to the desired folder, then press "Choose".

10. The converted font will appear on your drive (below left). You can install it by copying it to the Fonts folder in the Macintosh System folder. Optionally, click File > Save to save the FontLab .VFB file (below right).
