Hello. We have no plans to create new Kmhmu fonts. Most up-to-date Lao fonts support that language, including Noto. The Kmhmu keyboard for Keyman also includes a font. The Boonhome font is now called Boonbaan and is licensed under the SIL Open Font License, so you can modify it if it doesn’t already support Kmhmu. We are not able to easily train you in font development, as it is highly technical, but let me know your background in design and computing and I may be able to point you to online resources that can help.

can you support me about project development font kmhmu’ ?



It sounds like you want to develop a font for Kmhmu using the Khmer script rather than the Lao script. There are many OFL-licensed Khmer fonts available, including Noto, that you could use - see the Khmer font page on ScriptSource. They may even already support the letters you need.

If you want to find out more about font development in general, read Design With FontForge. That’s a good introduction and has links to other resources.
