Mr Hand Font?

Billy Earnest
Does someone have a working Mr Hand font that you will share with me?
I have one, but it's not working in AC 18 for whatever reason. I don't need all the fonts that come in that package for $60...I just want this one. Please?????
I'm working on Mac Version Yosemite 10.10.5, ArchiCAD 18 if that matters. Please email me directly

I appreciate your message, but of course I've already done that. That font is not working properly....iMac or MacBook Pro, both Yosemite, AC 18.
I'll ask again, if someone has this font working with AC18, please share.

I edited Mr Hand in a trial version of a font editor 10 years ago - but cannot remember what editor, and my post here on ac-talk isn't showing up in a search.

Somehow, just editing the font (I changed the spacing between digits to be tighter) and saving it out as a TTF made it work with AC ... and it still works in current releases.

I'm pretty sure I paid for my copy of the original font, so don't feel right sharing it here as an attachment - so just offer the tip of finding a trial of a font editor to re-save the font in an updated font format.
