Font Basics

Font Files Versus Font Suitcases

Font Files

Font file is the term used to describe a particular individual font as it appears on the Finder's desktop. It can be moved or copied just like any other type of file.

All characters in a font look related, and this basic design is called the typeface of the font. All fonts of the same typeface have the same general name and are said to belong to the same family. Thus, Times 10, Times 12, Times (bold), and so on are all part of the Times family of fonts, even though they are a different size and/or style.
