I can install fonts from TTF files, but I've encountered a TTC file. Font Manager recognizes such files as fonts and will display the different typefaces in the family, but it renders them incorrectly (as generic san-serif). If I try to install them, I get the above message. I can install other fonts from the same source directory.
Anyone know what gives here? Windows has supported TTC files since Windows 2000, so this should be working.
TTC is a font collection format, as far as I know any font manager will need them extracted to their native format. https://transfonter.org/ttc-unpack is a link to an online unpacked.
Thanks, but both Mac OS and Windows have handled these files for 15 years. Corel Font Manager recognizes the files and lists the fonts they contain; so if the application can't move them into place, it's woefully deficient.
Thanks for the link. That's what I used to work around the problem for now, although it revealed other defects in Font Manager (which I reported in another post).
I've been doing graphics for 42 years and never came across ttc format in practice. So reading up on the file format can I assume that you can install the ttc files directly in Windows?
