Still Using PostScript Type 1 Fonts? Really?




  • Immwi

    We still use PS Type 1 fonts. They are supported by the Adobe software palette on Mac OS X. Just create a folder Fonts inside the directory /Library/Application Support/Adobe/ and restart your computer. Every PS Type 1 font  (.PFB) you put in that folder is available inside InDesign, Illustrator, etc.

    Thanks for your comment, Immwi. Yes, many PostScript (PS) fonts will continue to work. However, PS fonts are out-dated and not recommended in a business environment — especially when a much better and stable version (OpenType) is available.
