If you are a Mac user and use Windows system for occasional work, you will find that Mac has some beautiful collection of fonts which are not available in Windows. Professional users like artist and web designers mostly switch between Mac OS and Windows for their work and would love the way the Mac renders the font.

The MacOS has a good collection of the font which is nicer, smoother, easier and optimized to read than the ones available in Windows. But unfortunately, you cannot use the Mac font in Windows as both Windows and Mac use different font rendering technology. However, Windows font is of True Type format (.ttf) which is supported in Mac. But vice versa is not true.

The Mac font is of .dfont type and Windows cannot directly read Mac True Type fonts like .dfonts. Windows can only read Windows Open Type and Windows TrueType fonts. To copy Mac font (.dfont) to Windows and use them in Windows, you have to use a third-party application to convert Mac fonts (.dfont) into Windows TrueType format(.ttf).

In this article, we explain how to convert Mac Font (.dfont) to Windows Compatible Font (.ttf) using an open source application program called DfontSplitter.

Installing your Type 1 or OpenType .otf fonts on Mac OS 8.6 to 9.2 or Mac OS X “Classic” requires ATM Light 4.6 or later (4.6.2 for Mac OS X Classic).

If you are running Mac OS X, decide if you want to install fonts into both the Classic environment and the OS X native environment. If you want your fonts to be accessible to both Classic and Carbon/native applications, install your fonts into the Classic environment. If the fonts only need to be accessible to Carbon/native applications, install into the OS X native environment instead.

Note: Do not move an entire folder containing fonts into the System location. The Mac OS can only read font files that are loose in the system font location; it can’t read files inside another folder.

To install your fonts using a font management utility (e.g., Extensis Suitcase, Font Reserve, FontAgent Pro or MasterJuggler), refer to that utility’s documentation for instructions on adding and activating the fonts.

  1. Before installing your fonts, quit all active applications.
  2. Locate the fonts you want to install on your hard drive, or go to the location you downloaded the fonts to. Each font package or collection will be in its own folder.
  3. Install your fonts in the System Folder:Fonts folder by moving or copying all the font files from their individual font folders into the System Folder:Fonts folder. For PostScript Type 1 fonts, this includes both the outline font files (red A icons) and the font suitcases. Often a family of outline fonts will be associated with a single font suitcase. OpenType .otf fonts are single-file fonts, and do not include font suitcases.
  4. The fonts are now installed and will appear in the font menus of your applications.
