OpenType Installation Instructions
Adobe Frutiger Std and NPS Rawlinson OT are OpenType fonts. The same OpenType font files work on both Windows-PC and MacOS computers.
Remove previous fonts: We strongly recommend that you first remove all previous Type 1 PostScript versions of Adobe Frutiger and NPS Rawlinson from your computer before installing the new OpenType fonts. This will prevent any confusion or mistakes when using the new fonts.
- Download the zip file of the font.
- Extract the contents of the zip file.
- Select all of the otf files in the unzipped folder.
- Right click and choose "install". (You must log into your machine as an administrator in order to do this.)
Do not extract (or manually copy) the font files into the Windows XP Fonts folder. Fonts must be "installed" into this folder to become active. To install Adobe Frutiger Std and NPS Rawlinson OT in Windows XP:
- You must be logged into your Windows XP machine as "Administrator".
- From the "Start" button, select "Settings" and then "Control Panel".
- Open the "Fonts" folder in the Control Panel.
- On the "File" menu of the Fonts folder, select "Install New Font..."
- Browse to the folder that contains the fonts you want to install (the folder where you extracted the ZIP compressed font files which you previously downloaded).
- Highlight the fonts you wish to install (or click on the "Select All" button) and then click on "OK".
- The fonts are now installed and will appear in the font menus of your applications.
Mac OS X or Later
Mac OS X has native support for OpenType fonts, which can be installed just like other font type on OS X. Fonts installed in the OS X native environment can be accessed by (a) any user or (b) just by an individual user.
- Before installing your fonts, quit all active applications.
- Locate the folder that contains the fonts you want to install.
- Copy or move all the font files from their individual font folders into either of the following locations. (Note that the fonts must be loose in the destination folder, not in a subfolder.)
(a) <Volume>/Library/Fonts/ (Note: you must be logged on as an "Administrator")
- The fonts are now installed and will appear in the font menus of your Carbon and native applications.
To install your fonts using a font management utility (e.g., Extensis Suitcase, Font Reserve, FontAgent Pro or MasterJuggler), refer to that utility's documentation for instructions on adding and activating the fonts.
