Converting Mac Dfonts to PC TTF fonts
posted @ 5:32 am in [ Fixing Things -Web Design ]

I’ve recently had to turn Mac .dfonts into PC ttf’s and thought I’d share the process

 

1.       Split the .dfont into respective parts

 

Mac .dfonts are basically containers (like zip files) and contain a number of Mac format TTF fonts. To split them using DfontSplitter

and/or Fondu if you prefer the command line (me!)

2.       Convert them to PC TTF

 

Drag the TTFs into FontLab 4 (a great tool from Fontlab (http://www.fontlab.com/) and then File -> Generate Fonts to get the resultant PC TTF files ready to go

 

Phew!
