Type 1 fonts and Windows 7/Vista/XP: 2 ways for installing them

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/29

This works for Windows XP and Windows Vista too:


Just tested out installing a few T1 fonts. There are two general rules for how to do this.

  1. Drag/drop both the PFM and PFB files (the INF and AFM files aren’t important nor needed) to C:\Windows\Fonts
  2. Open each font by clicking on the PFM and clicking the Install button at the top of the font preview window.

#2 is slower, but it works as well as any other with any font type that Windows 7 supports:

Note: If you drag/drop Type 1 fonts (PFB/PFM) to the Windows\Fonts folder, Windows 7 may complain when copying the PFB saying that it’s missing the PFM and that you should install using the PFM.

Either way – both methods work tho #2 is preferred when dealing with a T1 font.
