Software :: Converting A PC Font To A Mac Font For OS X?

Apr 26, 2010

Recall, but can't locate it now, a freeware utility that converted PC fonts so that they were compatible with the Mac OS. This goes back a few years to earlier operating systems, both PC and Mac. I just downloaded 4 PC fonts I'd like to add to my current collection. Now running OS 10.6.3.

OS X :: Font In Firefox & Safari - Rogue Font Has Hijacked My Web Fonts?

Aug 1, 2009

I just got some internet going again after having moved. I've had my new Octopus for a few weeks tho. So much to my surprise, I open up my gmail account and it's practically unintelligible. Some weird cartoon like font is my default font. As far as I can tell, all the default fonts are activated and all the settings point to the activated fonts, but this is driving me absolutely F__KING bonkers. Has anyone ever had this problem? Now to be fair, I did install some fonts from a semi questionable font disk a week or two ago, so maybe some rogue font has hijacked my web fonts.

MacBook Pro :: Font Size On 17 Is Too Small - How Can I Increase The Font Size

Jun 4, 2010

I'm trying to increase the font size of my mac, but I can't find it anywhere. I should be really simple to do so I'm probably missing something. On windows you just right click the desktop > appearance and bang. How can I do it on the mac? Oh and I don't want to increase the font of safari or finder, i already know how to do that, what I'm looking for is a way to make all fonts bigger (including menus)... just like you do on windows, make all fonts 1.2 times bigger.

OS X :: Font Rendering In OS 10.6?

Sep 14, 2010

I just picked up a Macbook Pro with 10.6 and notice some fonts in Firefox appear too strong or bold. I've run a search here but not getting this corrected.

I went to system prefs and turned off font smoothing in appearance.

I opened terminal and put in "defaults -currentHost write -g AppleFontSmoothing -int 1" but not seeing any change there either.

I'm a noob with terminal. When I enter the above, I get nothing but a prompt again. Am I missing something?

OS X :: DMG Or RAR For Font Preservation?

Oct 21, 2010

My apollogies if this is the incorrect forum, but I have a question on compression options. I have a 9gb library of iTunes music that is both tagged and file-named in Cyrillic. I don't know if it would matter or not how I choose to do this, but I intend on compressing this library of folders and files into a single file for back up purposes, as previous attempts to back up these files, has lead to garbled file names and tags.

So, keeping in mind the total directory size here, would you suggest making the top level folder into a RAR or DMG?

OS X :: Can I Adjust The Font In Preview?

Jan 3, 2011

So I'm trying to adjust the font in a PDF in Preview. I can't do there a way? I also realized that I don't have Adobe....I have Adobe Digital for downloaded books but I guess that's all it's for.

I went online and all I can find is Adobe to buy.

So, finally my question....can I adjust the font in Preview? Zooming doesn't work for me...won't bore you with the reasons.

Or will I have to buy Adobe to get that function in PDF's?

If you can't tell I'm new to the Mac, coming over from Windows for 12 years!!

OS X :: Installing Font Onto Mac (from 1001freefonts)?

Apr 29, 2009

I went to 1001freefonts and clicked on the Mac download button, and in the 'Downloads' folder (through the Finder) I could see the font, but with the extension .sit. Hmmm. Not sure what that is. I persevered and found where fonts are housed on a Mac (Finder-Library-Fonts) and dragged the font file to the Font folder (as per the instructions here - [URL] but didn't know what he was talking about with the whole suitcase thing.

But nothing happened. I can see the file under the Font folder, but I cannot access the font in PhotoShop or Word. I am assuming I've missed a step (I keep reading about 'unpacking' but I have no clue what that is), but I don't know what that step would be. Do you?
