I have a font that was used on Mac OS X 10.5. Mac recognizes it as a font file. Windows Vista shows it as a "File".
Changing the file extension doesn't work. I tried both .otf and .ttf and neither worked. (Surprise! I didn't thinks so, but I'd be a fool for asking if that was the answer, so I tried...) Perhaps I need to try a different extension?
Are there any utilities to convert the font? A Windows equivalent? It's called Franco. (FrancoNormal, actually.)
DFontSplitter didn't work. I saw something online about "data fork" and "resource fork" that has to match up. Can someone please explain that?
Do I need both for a font conversion? What do I tell my graphic designer to send me?
The font doesn't work when downloaded to Mac OS X either. (A different machine from the original.) "Get Info" reveals that there is no file extension, leading me to believe that this is the newer font format. Where wold I find the the "data fork" and "resource fork" on the Mac? I want to be able to tell the designer exactly where to look.
DFontSplitter works on the original computer but not on my PC. I converted and emailed myself the fonts from the graphic designers laptop. I guess it has to do with the data being stored in a "fork" whatnot.
Thanks, Matt for that article.
Thank you again for your help!
