using post script & true type fonts
Posted on 2000-03-27
i have an Epson Stylus 800 inkjet (with PostScript2 installed). i'm on a Mac 8.6 OS with ATM 4.5.1 and Epson Stylus RIP software installed. my question is, can i (or should i) use both true type and postscript fonts? do i need to somehow "download" my postscript fonts into the printer RAM (and if so, how do i do this)? should i keep all of my fonts together (ps & tt) in the main font folder located inside the system folder and let ATM handle them?
i like using tt fonts instead of bitmapped because i do a lot of work using fonts of varying sizes, but i'm noticing that when i print things out i seem to be getting the non-ps printed fonts because the edges aren't anti-aliased (they're jaggedy). i hope this isn't too confusing.
