Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is just the part of the PostScript interpreter that
processes Type 1 fonts so you can see them on the screen. It traps
application font calls and renders them for display. Some apps (not sure
about FM) automatically boot ATM when they open, but I wouldn't take the
chance. I'd start ATM manually if I was using extensive Type 1 PostScript.
However, I usually content myself with TrueType, so ATM isn't of much value
on my machine. In our production side of the house, however, PostScript gets
a workout, so they need ATM for Type 1.
