File Formats

Which file format (.ttf or .otf) should I install?

Your font is available in two formats: TrueType Font file (.ttf) and OpenType Font file (.otf). If you have a Mac® or newer Windows® computer, install the .otf file(s). If you have an older Windows computer, install the .ttf files.

I’ve written a visual guide/article explaining in more details what the differences are between .otf and .ttf, some of the included features are, how I’ve used them to enhance my typefaces, and why, when, and how to use them.

Save a copy of the .otf and .ttf files to a convenient folder such as the documents folder to act as a backup just in case you need to re-install the font after buying a new computer, or upgrading your operating system.
