9.Click "Open Output File Location" to access the generated font file. The output font file will be using the same name as that of the input font file without any extension. The font file will be suffixed with a .ftfont extension. You will also find a .png file under the same directory. This .png file will provide a preview of the generated font.


For example, if the name of the input font file used for conversion is Jost_Futuristic_Style.ttf, then the generated font file will be named as Jost_Futuristic_Style.ftfont and the .png file will be named as Jost_Futuristic_Style.png.
