    Supported font types in Mac?
    Hi. Soon i am going to be switching to Mac, and i want to know which fonts are supported. Many of my favorite fonts are TrueType Font files, and i want to know if i can still use them in my Mac.

    Yep you sure can! I can't remember all the font types supported, but most all of them are.

    yes, you can take any font off your pc and drop it on the mac, and itll work fine. the most common types are truetype, opentype, postscript 1 & 2, and bitmap.

    OSX 3.5 will support True Type, Postscript Type 1 and Open Type fonts.
    It will unfortunately not support the old Mac Bitmapped fonts.
    I had a couple of fonts in my collection on CD that my Mac didn't like but they were fine after I installed them onto a windows XP box first then grabbed them from that :-)
