== Manual == The manual for TeXfont: [ mtexfont.pdf] Many guides to its application are available on the [[My Way]] page. == Known problems == The problems may result from misbehaviour of programs called by TeXfont or from TeXfont itself. === texfont fails with syntax error ===
(Tested on: TeXFont version 2.2.1; afm2tfm version 8.1 (dvips(k) 5.94b); Windows XP)
After you have done this to all the <tt>.afm</tt> files, <tt>afm2tfm</tt> should work and texfont should complete successfully.
=== texfont fails on overlong AFM lines ===
afm2tfm chokes on lines in AFM files that are longer than 256 characters; these shouldn't occur, but e.g. Linotype's lawyers forced endless copyright notices in their AFM files.
You also choose option '''3.''' above because afm2pl will ignore the excess info without choking.
(Maybe newer versions of afm2tfm fix this also.)
=== problems under Windows ===
[ LCDF Typetools] have some problems under windows. For some unknown reason (most probably because kpsewhich didn't find adobe glyph list), I had to move <code>glyphlist.txt</code> to <code>C:\usr\local\share\lcdf-typetools\glyphlist.txt</code>. There were some other problems as well.
== System requrements ==
In order to install an [[OpenType]] font, you will also need [ LCDF Typetools].
(There are probably more programs that need to be installed, but most of them are already shipped with standard TeX distributions.)
