Convert fonts to OpenType

Software converts entire font libraries to OpenType in one click.

OpenType is a newer font file format that has been designed from the ground up with the future in mind. (read previous post about OpenType here) Since OpenType offers so many benefits, people often ask us how to get OpenType versions of their fonts.

FontXChange converts fonts from one format to another – including OpenType – and it does it quickly and easily.

Here’s how:

1. Download FontXChange for Macintosh here

2. Double-click the FontXChange application icon

3. Drag and drop your fonts into the main window of FontXChange

4. Select the OpenType format button

5. Click the  “Convert” button

    And what about the preferences?

    If I Want an OpenType font (converted from PS Type 1 Mac) which can be used on Mac and PC, is “Automatically choose Best Encoding” the best choice? And should I use “Postscript Name” or “Full Name” or “Original File Name”?

      Good questions. Yes- use the “Automatic” choice unless you need a particular font encoding. As for the file names, that only depends on how you want to organize your font files.

      Hope that helps – and thanks again for your comments.

    Do you guarantee that a Postscript font converted to Opentype will work in all of the graphics applications? Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. I have a large library of Postscript fonts, some are real old. Does age matter?

      Thanks for the post. We don’t offer a “guarantee” per se, other than our standard 30-day money back guarantee, but the converted fonts have been tested on major software applications and they do work. You may want to do some testing using the demo version:

      Thanks again for you comments and questions!
