comment How do I make expanded fonts and install them?
@RussLyons Yes, I was referring to the fontinst source file (which is not included in the newtx package). It might be possible to reverse-engineer this virtual font, ie. to reconstruct the series of fontinst commands, but that's not something I would advise to do (\xscalefont would be the relevant command to add for expansion). As for documentation, there's fontinst.pdf, fisource.pdf, and also the fontinstallationguide.pdf. \latinfamily is only meant to install (Latin) text fonts, not math fonts, so it wouldn't be of any help in the case of ntxmi.

@RussLyons Sorry, but this is really getting too confusing now. Could you not update your question, saying which fonts you are using and which you would like to have expanded? (ntxmi is a math font. And as it is virtual font, you'd have to use fontinst, for which you would need the source.)

@RussLyons Firstly, sorry, the map entries were indeed wrong, my bad. Secondly, you can convert a pfb to afm with pf2afm (from ghostscript)

comment Windows 10 - MikTex 2.9 FATAL miktex-maketfm - No creation rule for font jkpmn8t+10
The name of the missing font (jkpmn8t+10) seems to suggest that you are using microtype's automatic font expansion in DVI mode, which won't work.

comment Disable protrusion from microtype for just one word
If you don't like the dash protruding into the left margin, then you should change the protrusion settings.

@RussLyons Maybe you should edit your question detailing what you did and what still doesn't work. Or even ask a new question, as installing the map file is not really related to font expansion but is a "normal" installation problem.

@RussLyons What does kpsewhich newtx-ext.map yield? And what kpsewhich ntx-Regular-tlf-ot1+20.tfm? And what happens if you run dvips -u+newtx-ext.map?

@RussLyons Sorry, I have no idea about xdvi. Does another texhash help? Does dvips run fine?

@RussLyons For the afm file I simply looked into the directory fonts/afm/public/newtx/, because the font you use is part of the newtx package. With regards to installing your new newtx-ext.map, this is really not different from enabling any other map file, as detailed in the question you linked to: put the file in a place where it will be found, update the data base, and enable the map file with updmap(-sys).
