If any doubt, please let me know it to make the process clearer for you. Thanks.

Thank you Nancy. I forgot to say that when you have the font done, you have to crop each layer adjusted to each letter.

Thankyou for sharing this Issabella, I got lost in the 'chat' first time round. Do you use script "auto crop all layers" or crop each layer individually please?

Thank you so much RJKD. I crop each layer as each letter needs a different wide size. But my first step when I have the stack of layers is to check if letters "M" and "W" are suitable in the space of their layers. If not, select the whole font you have in a canvas, and reduce the size a bit.
Guides are very important to keep the letters at level. :)
