Opening fonts from Mac in Windows XP

by momentusdesign / May 31, 2008 7:52 PM PDT


I received some fonts in an email from a Mac user. He attached them as windows friendly attachments, uncompressed. When I add the windows extension (TTF) windows still doesn't seem to recognize them.

I wanted to set the file to open with Windows font viewer, thats what my other fonts open with, but I can't seem to find it on my computer.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help!

You may need a font converter.

I passed the info on to the Mac user (as its a mac program to convert fonts). Hopefully it will work.

Thanks for the advice!
