PostScript Type1 problem with FontLab
0

Hi,
I have an old font which says it's Postscript Type 1 but when opened in FontLab, no glyph is showing. It does show its characthers in FontBook though (Macintosh) and if I install it, it will be placed in font folder of Classic OS.
Is it possible to convert it to TTF font and view its glyphs in FontLab? How?
Thanks,
Behnam

which file are you trying to open with FontLab? you should be able to open the pfb file which will give you all the character information.

Frankly I don't know. It doesn't have extension and I'm not familiar with font formats other than TTF. In the Info it says it's Type1 PostScript.
I couldn't send attachment directly to you. If you contact me, I'll reply with a sample of those fonts.
