Hi all. I recently switched over to a Mac (first one) about a month ago and I am having problems installing my Adobe Font Folio (version 9) fonts in to my Fonts folder. I have tried adding them via Font Book, Extensis and even copying them to <Volume>/Users/<username>/Library/Fonts/ but to no avail it has not worked. While the font folders appear in my fonts folder it appears that the fonts are not compatible. Each font has a .AFM, .PFB and a .INF file extension and are classified as Post Script Type 1 fonts. I can add Open Type and True Type fonts with no problem.

So my question is, are these Font Folio Fonts compatible with OSX ? Is there another way that I can add them?

I have over 2000 fonts and I would hate to not be able to use these

Thanks.

These are Windows Postscript fonts. But there's a possible solution here:

Major props man! I was looking everywhere for something to work and this did it. It took me a while to figure how to generate the fonts but it worked like a charm! :D:D
