Just going through and cleaning up the Font Library at my new workplace. All our work stations are Macs using OSX and Suitcase to manage our fonts. Is there any reason these days to save the .AFM files associated with our Macintosh Type 1 fonts?
I don't think that Mac OS X, or even Mac OS, ever used the AFM files for anything.
I didn't think so, either. But many of these font packages seem old and dating back to the pre OSX days, and they are Mac fonts, not Windows, so I'm wondering what they were even used for.
