Hello Everybody!

I have a big problem: I need to use some fonts (that somebody gave me) in my illustrator work, but the extension of the fonts is really strange (.afm)

i tried to convert the file with some online website into -ttf ('cause i have windows) but i cannot do it!!

I do not know what to do!!

Please could somebody help me?

The files provided to you, .afm files, are not font files. .afm files are “Adobe Font Metrics” files, ascii files containing metrics about a font including widths and bounding boxes of glyphs, kerning information, etc. They don't contain the font outlines.There is absolutely nothing you can do with these files for what you need or want to do. Sorry.              - Dov
