Font Specifications

Our different fonts can have various languages, different OpenType features and different character sets included.

Please refer to the Technical Documentation PDF of each font. You can find them on any font's page, at the Font Info zone.


We currently cover most of the languages using the Latin alphabet, and several of our fonts provide Cyrillic and Arabic alphabets too. If there are several alphabets in the font, it means that they are all included in the same font file.

Stylistic Set and other OpenType features

If there are several stylistic sets (and/or other OpenType features) in the font, it means that they are all included in the same font file.

Adobe PostScript Type 1

Type 1 fonts has been replaced by OpenType ones a while ago - this won’t be a problem with any of Swiss Typefaces' fonts.

Fonts activated from the Adobe Fonts library may appear in Creative Cloud software with a file type of OpenType Type 1. This should more precisely display as the file type OpenType CFF.

CFF is a compact representation of Type 1 that Adobe continue to support.

Important information about compatibility and usage

A.    The Supplier provides the Font Software in the standard OpenType/CFF (.otf) desktop font formats. These font files are valid, installable, and printable fonts. OpenType layout features are tested independently from any application.

B.    TrueType (.ttf) desktop files are made available in complement to the OpenType files for our catalog typefaces. These files are specifically intended for Microsoft Office software, AutoCAD, and other software not supporting properly the standard OpenType font format. Our TrueType files use style-linking technology to comply with these software's requirements. These .ttf files are provided to ensure maximum compatibility to our customers in their various working environments, but we cannot offer any warranty nor support on our TrueType fonts compatibility and usage.

C.     The Microsoft Office software does not publish its specifications nor communicate with fonts providers. Each update (Mac or PC) may potentially change the behavior of the fonts you are using in your documents, without any warning. Microsoft specifically stipulates in their Terms & Conditions that third-party fonts are not supported in Microsoft Office for Mac. Therefore, we cannot give any warranty on the usage of our fonts within Microsoft Office. In the absence of communication on their side, we cannot provide any support if our fonts are not supported by their applications anymore.

D.     Webfonts files are supplied in WOFF2 (.woff2) formats.

E.     WOFF (.woff), EOT (.eot), and SVG (.svg) are depreciated webfonts formats that we do not provide anymore. You are allowed to convert the provided font files to these formats. Therefore, we cannot offer any warranty nor support on these font software format compatibility and usage.

It's a matter of the systems, software versions, or browsers whether they support our formats and features: please refer to your system/software/browser documentation.
