    Adobe Font Folio 11.1 is a multi-platform type collection that contains more than 2,400 fonts from the Adobe Type Library in OpenType® format. OpenType is a true cross-platform font format developed by Adobe and Microsoft® that can contain an expanded character set for better linguistic support and enhanced typographic functionality. With OpenType, one font file contains all of a font’s outline and metrics information, and the same font file can be used on the Macintosh and Windows® platforms.

    OpenType fonts from Adobe can be installed and used alongside PostScript® Type 1 and TrueType fonts, and can be printed to most output devices and embedded in PDF files. OpenType fonts are natively supported on Mac OS X, Windows® 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000. They are compatible with older operating systems via ATM® Light, a free system software component from Adobe. Once OpenType fonts are installed, virtually all applications can work with them, though applications must incorporate specific support to access added typographic glyphs present in some OpenType fonts.

    The keystone of any type library, Adobe Font Folio 11.1 offers a wide range of font styles to choose from, including workhorse text typefaces, innovative display typefaces, handwriting and script typefaces, bullets and ornamental fonts. Font designs in this collection were created by world-renowned type foundries, such as Adobe, Monotype Imaging, ITC, and Linotype, cutting-edge foundries and talented individual designers. The fonts in Adobe Font Folio 11.1 were then expertly crafted by Adobe’s type development staff, and represent some of the highest quality fonts available, both in terms of design aesthetics and technical reliability.

    To fully explore the contents of this CD-ROM, you will need a recent version of Adobe Reader® software, a free utility for viewing and printing Portable Document Format (PDF) files, as several of the files are supplied as PDFs.
