So you found a really good font that you were looking for ages, but the only problem is that the font file format is something used by an operating system that you have never heard of. And if you have bought this commercial font, then all of your money does down the drain. But do not be quick to delete that font file. You can easily convert font file formats using the CrossFont program.
CrossFont is a Windows software using which you can convert the font file formats in just one click. It supports a number of font file formats for conversion. You can choose the source font types DFON, FFIL, TFIL, LWFN, PFB, AFM, PFA, OTF, TTF and convert them into TFIL, OTF, TTF, WOFF, EOT font types. Since most of the font formats are either supported on Windows or Mac OS, you can use it to convert Mac supported font files into Windows supported font files and vice versa.
The GUI of CrossFont is self explanatory. You have to select one or more source font files that will be displayed in the list. After this you have to select the target font format type from the Convert To list. You can select four font formats for the destination – TFIL, OTF, TTF, WOFF, EOT font types. Then you can select the folder for the destination where the converted font files will be saved. Now all you have to do is select the font file that you want to convert from the list and click on the Convert button from the toolbar.
Verdict: CrossFont is an easy-to-use one-click font format conversion software. You do not have to worry about any design related or technical details, everything is handled automatically by the CrossFont software. But it is available only as 15-day trialware and after that it will stop converting the fonts.
