Description The OTF file is most commonly associated with computer fonts. It was developed by both Adobe and Microsoft and has been introduced to Mac OS X and Windows 2000. This OpenType Font format is similar to the TTF (TrueType Font) format. What sets the OTF format apart from other font file formats is that it is scalable. This is a 7-bit font format used for directly downloading to a PostScript printer. It has two character encoding in hexadecimal. It has good compatibility with multiple font formats. PFA contains an outline for font symbols and is formatted in ASCII text data.
Technical details Similar to TrueType Font files, the OTF format also contains aspects of the equaly popular PostScript format, creating a single file that combines aspects of both.
