Hello,

We have a copy of Adobe Font Folio purchased years ago, and the Adobe Type Basics folder on nthe disk contains no .pfm files, so we can't install those fonts. Is there a way to get the .pfm files from Adobe?

Keith,

Yes, we have them and can supply them to you.  These must be from the original FF9.0, which shipped with ATM and it made the .pfm files on the fly. Newer versions of Windows don't use ATM anymore and we added the .pfm files to the FF9.0.1 update we did a couple of years ago.  If you contact me directly with your email, I can send them to you. 

Be advised, though, that Type 1 fonts do not work in Office 2013; Microsoft discontinued support of the older graphics model that supported Type 1 fonts in that and later releases. They should be fine in most other apps, though.
