New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
About three years ago I purchased a license for Stella for both Mac and PC. Both versions are Postscript Type 1. I'm now on Vista using CS3 and my Stella Type 1 is showing its age -- the font families don't display correctly within InDesign or Illustrator, and sometimes they just don't work at all.
I fired up TypeTool and tried a few test conversions to OT and they work great for the most part. Somehow I even managed to get the families to group together. What bugs me is that the fi and fl ligatures will not work at all. I know this is nit-picky and Stella doesn't even need the ligatures, but what gives?
If I load up, let's say, Stella Lining (type 1), the ligatures work. If I convert that same font to OT, I lose the ligatures.
