deagio's picture

Hi,

I recently got my copy of the Cocon family of fonts, however they are all in .PFS format, which works in Adobe Photoshop but not in the programs i need like Word, Access and Photoshop.

I've trying a decnet program to convert it over, but i cant find anything that works, (I've tried TransType & Croddfont, neither of whih work for me)

Any ideas??!!

Thanks,

James

What sort of font is a PFS? I've never heard of that. You don't mean PFA do you?

James,

if you're on Windows 2000 or XP, just drag the accompanying PFM file to your Windows Fonts folder. If there is no PFM file but there are AFM and INF files, download ATM 4.1 Light and use it to install the font.

If you're on Windows 98/ME, download ATM 4.1 Light and use it to install the font.

Otherwise, you can use TransType 2 by Fontlab Ltd. to convert the font to Windows TTF:

I'm going to move your thread to the BUILD section where the experts on this stuff hide out.
