DfontSplitter for Mac and Windows are open source programs which allow you to take Mac-formatted .dfont font files and convert them into TrueType TTF fonts, which Windows and other operating systems can usually understand.

What's New

Version 0.4.1:
  • Fixed a bug where DfontSplitter would report valid files as not being in the correct format on some non-English versions of Mac OS X. File type detection is now done through uniform type identifiers, avoiding this issue.
Known Issues
  • Converting TTC files on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) does sometimes run into problems, where the TTC splitting script can(TM)t open the TTC more...


Mac OS X 10.5 or later

I feel compelled to echo A.B. Carracho's sentiments directed to this application's developer: "Bless you."

I use this application frequently because it is a God send.

It has saved me tons of time when working cross-platform, particularly when I am working on a Linux box.

The great part about it is once you split the dfont file, you can pull just the specific form of the font you intend to use and leave the rest behind.

For instance, I am a heavy user of the Helvetica Neue font, but only in it's ultralight form. So I used dfontSplitter to extract all the different forms of the font on my Mac and then just took the extracted Ultra Light TTF file for upload to my Linux box.

And it's much easier to use this utility than it is to expend time searching for (and maybe not ever finding) a non-dfont file containing the font you need to use on a non-OS X platform.

It would be less than useful for others to read a review based on just one use of DfontSplitter (0.4.1), so I offer this as a comment only, and specifically as a comment directed to the application's developer:

Bless you.
