MarkStein Publisher is optimized for the use of OpenType fonts. You can use the formats OpenType TrueType (.ttf) and OpenType PostScript (.otf). The use of OpenType fonts is mandatory if you are working in a multi-platform environment, i.e. if you want to open documents on both PC and Macintosh.
Conventional PostScript fonts are no longer supported in newer versions of Mac OS X. Under Windows, you can use existing PostScript fonts (.pfb, .pfm, .afm) until further notice. However, there is no guarantee that all fonts will be usable, as some fonts on the market do not conform to the conventions of Adobe. MarkStein Publisher cannot read such faulty fonts.
Older TrueType fonts of version 2.0 and higher can also be used with the MarkStein Publisher. TrueType fonts of version 1 are not supported and therefore cannot be imported. However, we do not recommend the use of TrueType fonts, since problems often occur with printing and PDF output.
