convert fonts from Macintosh to PC platform?

Hello. I have a client who has a Quark document. He uses a PC, and has the PC/Windows version of Quark.

He has received a Quark document that was built on a Apple / Macintosh computer. The document opens for him, but fonts are missing.

I think the original designer can send the missing fonts to my client. But those fonts work on an Apple Mac, not a PC.

Is there a way to convert those Apple fonts to work in this Quark document on the PC?

Grateful for any help.

best from Eric

Eric,

If the Mac is running OS X, and these are newer font files, you may be ok.

If not, take a look at CrossFont (http://www.asy.com/scrcf.htm). It's $45, but (at least in the past) you can use it on a trial basis prior to paying, and that may be sufficient for your needs. Note that this won't work if you have Suitcase files, it'll only work if you have the font files saved individually. CrossFont only allows you to convert from Mac to PC in the same format the original file is. So it the original fonts are Type1 for Mac, CrossFont will give you Type1 fonts for PC.

Cheers,
LHerrou
