Hi all

I went to buy the frutiger fonts (9fonts) from adobe. The format is open type which is what I want. B ut when going to buy them I am asked whether I want mac or windows format. I thought open type fonts were cross platform? We have both MACs and PCs, if I want the font on both do I have to buy both formats ?

Link to font:

Thanks for any help, sorry for this being off topic but I couldn't see where else to post.

Hi Gerry,

I suppose it is just a matter of how they are packed (sit or zip, rar), because, certainly, they are completely cross platform.

Yes, that's it, pretty much. Also, our download manager needs to know whether you're using Mac or Windows. The *contents* of the purchased file are the same.
