Mac OS X Font Installation Procedures

The installation procedures documented here apply to IDAutomation MICROCR, and Barcode Fonts. IDAutomation recommends using TrueType TTF fonts on the Mac if possible. Refer to the Barcode Font Installation Procedures for other methods of installing fonts in other operating systems.


Installing TTF TrueType or OTF OpenType fonts on the Mac:

  1. Drag or copy and paste the TTF or OTF font files to the Library/Fonts folder.
  2. To activate the fonts, restart the application – some applications may require a computer restart.
  3. The fonts should now be active in the font menu of the application.
  4. To create the correct output for the font, choose the font in the application.
