Which format should I choose for desktop use?

Our desktop fonts are available to license in either OpenType or TrueType format. Both formats are cross-platform and can be used on a Mac or Windows PC computer. Our advice is to choose the OpenType format unless you are aware of any specific software requirements on your computer that demand the TrueType format.

Please note! Our OpenType fonts are OpenType CFF (Compact Font Format). They are smaller in file size and use PostScript outlines to render each letterform.

Here are some general guidelines:

OpenType (.otf)

OpenType fonts are cross-platform compatible and the same font file can be installed and work on both Macintosh and Windows computers.

For further information, please visit:

TrueType (.ttf)

Fontsmith TrueType fonts are technically OpenType fonts containing TrueType® outlines, and have a .ttf file extension. TrueType is the original Windows PC font format but it also works on a Macintosh system. TrueType is often required for use with specialist software or on older Windows PC systems.
