I use lots of OpenType Fonts (.otf files)) in LibreOffice on my Debian

have a problem under Windows either, but I can't verify that for you as
I don't have that OS at hand.
I am sorry. You were asking about Mac. Should have read better.
The code to support those typefaces apparently is available in
LibreOffice, so I don't expect any trouble coming from that angle.
However I know just about nothing about Mac, so I don't know if that
platform supports OTF at all. I guess it should, because Adobe has
always targetted that platform as one of their main markets.
If you contact me off the list, I can send you a OTF font and you can
try it on your Mac. I have over 100,000 fonts in my collection and many
of them are OTF. As I said before, I do have a complete[?] Adobe font
library from before 2006. I have Adobe fonts in OTF and TTF formats.
I tend to use TTF if I have a font in both format styles. But that is a
choice and not a requirement. I have so many fonts, I can use a
non-Adobe version that looks 99.9% like the Adobe version. This way, if
I need to deal with passing documents to others for shared editing
duties, I can pass on the font file as well. You should not do that
with Adobe's licenses.
So, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org off the list and I can
attach an OTF font to the reply so you can test out if Mac has a problem
with OTF. If you know of a non-Adobe font you want to try, I may have
it in ODF format.
What are the font names you are going to use? Those font names have
many versions. You will need to know the exact version name[s] if you
are going to deal with a magazine and its exact font formatting.
