Unpacking and installing fonts
After the payment process is complete, the fonts you have licensed become available in your Typotheque account for download. Once you have downloaded these files, you need to unpack (decompress) them and then install the fonts.
Typotheque Windows font files (PC PostScript and PC TrueType) and OpenType fonts are zip file archives. Zip file archives have a file extension of .zip. Recent versions of Windows (XP and later) can unpack zip file archives and self-extracting zip files when you right click on the file and select Extract. Otherwise, use software such as TurboZip, WinZip, or FreeZip to unpack these files.
Mac OS font files (PostScript fonts) are compressed and encoded as .sit files. If your browser does not extract the font files automatically after download, double-click the .sit files to decompress them with Archive Utility. If Archive Utility does not unpack the files you can download and install StuffIt Expander at no charge. Drag the .sit files onto Stuffit Expanderʼs icon or application window to decompress them.http://www.stuffit.com/mac/expander/index.html
Some applications need to be restarted after fonts are installed. Quit the application and start it up again to see the fonts in your font list.
We recommend installing only one format of a font; either OpenType, TrueType, or PostScript. Installing multiple formats of the same font may cause problems using the fonts.
Installing PostScript, OpenType, or TrueType Fonts in Mac OSX
Important: We do not recommend using font management software to install fonts. There have been several problems with Suitcase, FontReserve, FontAgent, FontBook, etc. The best way to install fonts is still to follow these steps and drop them directly into the system folder.
1. Close all open applications before installing fonts.
2. In the Finder, open the folder or disk that contains the fonts you want to install. Make sure that they are unzipped.
3. Select the all font files for the fonts you want to install (remember that each PostScript font requires 2 files), then double-click on any selected file. Font Book, the Mac OS font manager, will open a preview window for each font.
4a. Drag each font to the Computer icon in the Collections pane if you want the font to be available to all user accounts on the computer.
4b. Drag each font to the appropriate User icon if you want the font to be available exclusively to that particular user.
4c. Alternatively, you can click the Install Font button to install the font to the default location specified in Font Book > Preferences.
Fonts located in the computer’s Fonts folder (My Computer/Macintosh HD/Library/Fonts are available to all local users of the machine. Only a user with Administrator rights can modify the contents of this folder.
Fonts located in a user’s Fonts folder (UserName/Library/Fonts) are available to a particular user, but not to any other users with separate logins for the same machine.
Fonts installed in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts (during installation of an Adobe application) are only available to Adobe applications. To make them available to other applications, move them to My Computer/Macintosh HD/Library/Fonts or /UserName/Library/Fonts.
If you plan to use your Typotheque fonts primarily with Adobe applications, or you are installing OpenType Pro, you should install the fonts in the Library/Application Support/Adobe/fonts
If you want fonts to be available to applications running in Classic mode, (available only on older systems) you must install fonts into the Fonts folder inside the System 9 folder. They will be available to both your Classic System 9 applications and your OS X applications.
Installing PostScript or TrueType Fonts in Mac OS 9.x or 8.x
