Installing your fonts on a Mac system

System requirements:

Mac OS 10
We at Linotype recommend using the OpenType font format. Among the major advantages of this format is that it provides for compatibility between Mac and Windows and allows up to 65,000 characters per font to be embedded.
Please note that our Linotype downloads only support users of the most recent operating systems and application versions. If you are using an older system, you will probably need to install additional software, such as FontExplorer® X Pro, or you will not be able to access all font features.

1. Locate and extract your font file
All font files that you download from Linotype will be in compressed form. Before installing them, you will need to unzip them. For this purpose, just double-click on the .zip file.
We recommend that you save the extracted font file to your Desktop. If you have difficulties extracting your file, you will need (free) utility software, such as wie WinZip® and StuffItExpander®, to help you unzip your file.

2. Start your font management program
You can locate your font management program in Finder under “Programs”. Double-click on the name or icon to start the program.

3. Add the new font to your font manager
Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the font management window. Select the option “Add fonts”. This opens another pop-up window. Locate your unzipped font file and then click on “Open”.
Your new font will now be available to your system.
Linotype recommends use of FontExplorer® X Pro – the professional and easy-to-use font management software.

2. Add the new font to your font collection
Use copy and paste to add your unzipped font file to your fonts. First, locate your unzipped font file, mark and copy it.
Click on this to open it. Now click on “Edit” and “Paste” from the top bar to add the copied file to your font collection.
Your new font will now be available to your system.
