Adobe® Type Manager® (ATM®) Light is a system software component that automatically generates high-quality screen font bitmaps from the PostScript® outlines in Type 1 or OpenType® format. With ATM, you can scale your fonts without the characters appearing jagged, and you can also enable "font smoothing," which further improves the appearance of your fonts on-screen by using your computer monitor's color palette to intelligently improve the rendering of characters. ATM Light also allows you to print PostScript fonts on non-PostScript printers, and can be used to create custom instances of multiple master fonts.

4.6 is buggy, it causes some fonts not to work with Office 98. Stay with 4.5 if you can, and don't throw away that 4.5 installer.

Version 4.6.2

I was using ATM 4.0.2 with OS 8.1 and updated to ATM 4.6. Although the anti-aliased type looked very good on the screen, I kept freezing whenever I navigated between the Netscape and the finder. It also repeatedly corrupted my directory which I had to fix over and over again with Norton Disk Doctor. It is without question a buggy utility.

I went back to ATM 4.0.2 and the problem stopped.

My current problem is I've upgraded to OS 8.5.1 and need ATM 4.5 but cannot find it anywhere. Adobe doesn't offer it and MacUpdate doesn't list it. If anyone has acopy of ATM 4.5 please send it to me. Thanks.
