Converting PC Type 1 and TrueType fonts to Mac format


Refont (version 1.4) can convert (in both directions) between PC and Mac formats of Type1 and TrueType fonts. Note: it _cannot_ convert _between_ formats, only architectures. The procedure described above outlines how to convert a Mac archive into PC format so that you can get at the data. Presumably, the process can be reversed so that you can get at the data on the Mac side as well. Unfortunately, I don't have a Mac so I can't describe the process in detail.

Font Manipulation Package

The Y\&Y Font Manipulation package can convert PFA/B files into Mac format and AFM files into Mac screen fonts.
