Technical Note 01
How to Install the HT Typeface Collection

 
The fonts in the HT Typeface Collection are provided in two different formats: Adobe Postscript Type 1 fonts and TrueType fonts. Normally, only one format should be installed. Both produce good results and work with a wide variety of programs. If you use a lot of Adobe programs like Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Photoshop, etc., then you may want to use the Adobe Postscript Type 1 format. But the TrueType format will also work with these programs. The choice is yours.

Note: If you notice trouble with the fonts with some programs, you can remove the format that you installed and install the alternate format. It may solve the problem. Since Windows manages the fonts, either format should work but some programs may do better with TrueType and others may do better with Adobe Postscript Type 1.

  1. Insert the HT Typeface Collection CD into the DVD/CD drive of your computer.

Then select the "htfont" folder in the "Folders" list in the lower left corner of the dialog. After you do, the "List of Fonts" at the top of the dialog should be populated with the fonts in the HT Typeface Collection as shown below:
     
    Select one set of fonts to install with the Add Fonts dialog.

     
    There are four fonts (HT Audio Stuff, HT Microphones, HT Schematic and HT Speakers) and they will be listed twice. The TrueType versions will be listed first with "(TrueType)" at the end of each font name. The Adobe Postscript Type 1 versions will be listed second with "(Type 1)" at the end of each font name.
