Buyer’s Guide: Choosing a desktop format

Surprise! It’s a Buyer’s Guide on Tuesday and we’re here to help you choose the correct desktop format for the programs you use. Format_MattersMany foundries give you the choice between formats and you’ll want to keep in mind the programs that you will be using the fonts in daily.

OpenType (.otf) fonts typically have additional features that can only be accessed by programs that support them. OpenType works best in software like Adobe® Illustrator® and Adobe® InDesign®.

Although Microsoft Word 2010 supports some OpenType features, not all characters can be accessed if the font has a massive amount of alternates. For example, trying to access all the alternate swashes in Feel Script in PowerPoint would be painful. Don’t do it.

Also, you’ll only be disappointed further because OpenType fonts don’t embed well in PowerPoint.

Buyer’s Guide will resume at its normal schedule next week.
