How to install a font under Mac OS?

Mac OS X recognizes TrueType and OpenType fonts (.ttf and .otf) but not the PC bitmap fonts (.fon).
Files are compressed, you may need an utility like Stuffit Expander.

  • Under Mac OS X 10.3 or above (including the FontBook)
    Double-click the font file > “Install font” button at the bottom of the preview
  • Under any version of Mac OS X:
    Put the files into /Library/Fonts (for all users),
    or into /Users/Your_username/Library/Fonts (for you only).
