Can anybody recommend other good sites with Mac-centric forums?<br><br>Also, can anybody recommend a good site for finding free fonts (Windows or Mac). I have great fonts on my Mac at home, but I have to use Windows XP at the office and can't find standard professional stuff, like "imitations" of Univers, Eurostile, Helvetica. I'm only finding the wacky fonts, in an endless sea of pop-up ads.<br><br>Thanks!<br><br><br><br>----<br>S3V3N<br>Washington, DC USA
Well, use Mozilla for starters to get rid of the pop-up ads...<br><br>Second, I'm not sure where you would find the standard typefaces for 'free'- pretty much all I ever find are the 'wacky' fonts that you mentioned- fonts that emulate the Star Wars logo, Atari, etc, etc, ad infinitum...<br><br>I think that's why the ones EVERYONE use cost money. After all, I don't think I'd be using 'EarthQuake' as body copy....<br><br>No Mac access at work, huh? That's a shame.<br><br>Maybe you can see if Adobe offers any cheaper package deals...<br><br><br>[color:red]Hold on...it's time for a</font color=red><br>
Carp, that website I gave you is not a fonts website (although it looks like it on the homepage). It is a site for downloading .eps Logos for all kinds of companies.<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!

I never realy checked it out, I did see something about free fonts on the homepage or whatever that is.<br><br>Anyway my daughter has stored somewhere sites for free fonts, I am still looking for the links.<br><br>
Pick up a copy of CorelDraw! 6 from ebay or your local trade & exchange newspaper. Probably cost you $20 or less and comes with a font disk with over 1000 fonts including metric-identical copies of Univers, Gill, Helvetica etc in both TT and Type 1 flavors. Helvetica, for example, is called Swiss or Switzerland, Gill is Humanist, Times is Toronto etc, etc. There's also a book with the program which shows samples and identifies what a particulaf font is emulating.<br><br>It's great value, and I'd be amazed if you can't find what you're looking for. BTW, I have it and I convert where necessary from PC Type 1 to Mac with Fontographer, although there are other font conversion utilities out there. (Most are not free though).<br><br>HTH.<br><br>M1.<br><br>
