Fonts Across Platforms:
Porting Mac® Type 1 Fonts To
The PC With Mac Fontographer®
To find out more about Fontographer and where to
get it, click
1. In this case we will convert the Type
1 freeware font, ArtBrush. The font is comprised of
two files (more
here on why Type 1 fonts require two files). There
is a printer font file which contains the outlines and
a font suitcase file which contains the bitmap screen
fonts and metrics (more
here on recognizing fonts and their icons).
2. Drag and drop the .PFB file (the file
containing the font outlines) onto the Fontographer
icon (or start Fontographer and click File > Open
Font..., then select the Celtic.pfb file).
3. You will see a view of the individual
characters in the font window.
4. When using Fontographer, Type 1 font
metrics must be imported manually (more
here on why this is important and why you have to take
the necessary steps to include the metrics in the conversion).
Click File > Import > Metrics.
