We use True Type fonts, FrameMaker 5.1.2 for Win95,
Acrobat Distiller, and Postscript. We also completely removed ATM from
tech comm PCs.
This gets back to the question I posted Saturday:
I've always thought that to use PostScript fonts I needed Adobe Type
Manager. I've used it for years, but now I need to let those ambitious
programmers update my docs. Since ATM costs about $100, and they only
need one PS font, I was wondering if anyone knows of a cheap alternative
to ATM. I didn't find anything on shareware.com. If you answer
privately, I'll summarize to the list.
So, how do you display and print PS fonts without ATM? Is it that Frame
has a built-in PS manager? Can you display and print PS fonts from
other apps without ATM?
