Then getting your glyphs on the correct vertical position and getting the letter spacing as you want it is very easy.
For the correct vertical position, before you import the Illustrator vector put a simple small rectangle at the right of the vector with it's bottom on the baseline. After importing, in the glyph edit window look at the bottom position of that little rectangle. Is that zero? just delete the rectangle, if not you see how many units you will have to move the glyph to get it on the correct position. And, delete the rectangle. Do not yet worry about horizontal spacing.
Save your font file, and save again under a different name.
For the horizontal spacing select all your glyphs and goto Tools > Glyph Transformer > Metrics > Bearings. Select Selected. Give Left and Right an equal number. 50 is often a good value to start with. Remove all scripts that are in the script window and send your values to the script window. Now double click Left Side Bearing Point at x=0. OK. Ignore the warning, you are working with a copy.
A second later you have equal letter spacing. Click F5 to see if that spacing is correct or too narrow or too wide. Too narrow or too wide? Close the font without saving and reopen. Do the whole thing again with other values until you are happy.
You will probably have to do some manual correction with letters like the j, which you have to move somewhat to the left to prevent a gap left of the j.
You will have to do some kerning to get the best result.
Which version of Font Creator?
ellenelle never said with which font-file the problem occurred, did she? So, cloner, think.

Nope Owl. As long as we don't know what she is talking about how can we possibly try to reproduce the error?
As long as you are carefully hiding which font you are talking about you do not deserve an answer.

Lady, 1992, Type Revivals. Paratype always worked with existing fonts to make their versions, this one 1995. Adobe is 10 years later than Type revivals, 2002. Soft Horizons published their LainieDaySH in 1993.
Food for thought, right?
Dat overkomt je niet vaak Tjitske maar hier heeft je klant het geboortekaartje met de hand geschreven. Wonderbaarlijk dat er nog mensen zijn die die kunst verstaan

Tell me Andrea, what do you want? But be fast, very fast, as it is far very fast over bed time.
And, the question remains ... what do you need them for?
