PostScript or Type 1 fonts were developed by Adobe in 1985 for use with their PostScript printers. Initially, this font technology was available only from Adobe.
Briefly, OpenType is a font format jointly developed by Adobe and Microsoft in the late 1990ʼs. It came into wider use only after 2000, when Adobe included support for advanced typographic features in their InDesign, PhotoShop, and Illustrator applications.
We offer fonts primarily in OpenType format. OpenType is the only cross-platform format, i.e. the same file will work on both Macintosh and Windows computers.
If you have a problem with Typotheque fonts, try restarting your computer first. We do test our fonts rigorously, so chances are that there is a problem with font installation. If you are using a font manager and the font still doesnʼt work, try installing directly to the system instead.
1. Make sure that the fonts you want to install are unzipped before you begin.
