For a magazine, the editor uses an Open Type font from Adobe.
Are there any problems using such a font in LO on my Mac?
He has a license for the font for me, but I first want to make sure I can
use it in LO on my Mac.
I ask this beacuse I have some doubts when MS and Adobe call something

You are the one to find out. It costs you nothing to download this
software and give a try. We don't have the Open Type fonts you are talking

Thanks, Andrea, but they're not exactly free. A single font costs 26 $,
the whole family 280 $. I'm talking about the Avenir and ITC Stone families.
Anybody knows how they behave on Mac&  LO?

You are talking about the .OTF font files - right.
It there any reason you are not using .TTF files?

As for .OTF fonts from Adobe, Avenir 45 Book and Stone Sans;

   I went to my Adobe collection extracted one fonts from those names
   and installed then on my Ubuntu 10.04 system.  Then I looked for
   them in LO.  They showed up and seemed to work fine.

I do not own a Mac, so I cannot say for that OS, but it does show up in LO with my system.

I have Adobe fonts that have a file date of 2006, so I do not know if Adobe changed anything since then. I have [I believe] their complete font set in my collection. I have the TTF and OTF fonts stored in different zipped files. TTF - 191 MB zipped file, and OTF - 137 MB zipped file.
