Font For Mac Os X

Installing your Type 1 or OpenType .otf fonts on Mac OS 8.6 to 9.2 or Mac OS X “Classic” requires ATM Light 4.6 or later (4.6.2 for Mac OS X Classic).

The font used from Mac OS X is 'Lucida Grande'; in Mac OS 8 and 9, the font used for menus and window title was 'Charcoal,' but it could be changed from the preference panel. From System 1 up to 7.6 the default GUI font was Chicago. Download all Khmer Unicode for Windows and Mac OSX ទាញយកដោយសេរីកម្មវិធី Khmer Unicode keyboard និង Fonts. The following fonts are available to support additional characters not available in the default system fonts. All fonts are free for commercial use and can be installed on both Windows and Mac OS X except where noted. System 9 does not fully support Unicode fonts. TITUS Cyberbit - Free Unicode Font with serif characters. Covers most scripts.

If you are running Mac OS X, decide if you want to install fonts into both the Classic environment and the OS X native environment. If you want your fonts to be accessible to both Classic and Carbon/native applications, install your fonts into the Classic environment. If the fonts only need to be accessible to Carbon/native applications, install into the OS X native environment instead.

Note: Do not move an entire folder containing fonts into the System location. The Mac OS can only read font files that are loose in the system font location; it can’t read files inside another folder.

To install your fonts using a font management utility (e.g., Extensis Suitcase, Font Reserve, FontAgent Pro or MasterJuggler), refer to that utility’s documentation for instructions on adding and activating the fonts.

If you are using ATM Light without a font management utility. use the following instructions to install the fonts:

  1. Before installing your fonts, quit all active applications.
  2. Locate the fonts you want to install on your hard-drive or go to the location you downloaded the fonts to. Each font package or collection will be in its own folder.
  3. Install your fonts in the System Folder:Fonts folder by moving or copying all the font files from their individual font folders into the System Folder:Fonts folder. For PostScript Type 1 fonts, this includes both the outline font files (red An icons) and the font suitcases. Often a family of outline fonts will be associated with a single font suitcase. OpenType .otf fonts are single-file fonts and do not include font suitcases.
  4. The fonts are now installed and will appear in the font menus of your applications.

Special Note for Mac OS 9 & X Users:

Mac 10 includes basic fonts and keyboards. For most users this is all that will be necessary. To engage the fonts and keyboards in system 10.* go to System Preferences and choose International. Choose Input Menu and you will see a long list of input options. In some cases you are provided the option of the typewriter layout of the language and a layout more user friendly to North Americans. For example, for Russian you may choose Russian which uses the typewriter layout found in Russia or Russian-Phonetic which uses the homophonic layout preferred by many Americans.
