FontForge is a UNIX application, so it doesn’t behave 100% like a normal Mac Application.OS X 10.12 or later is required.

Download and install FontForge 2020-11-07

1. Install XQuartz

Without XQuartz, FontForge will open a Dock icon but not load any further.

Open Finder and look in your /Applications/Utilities/ folder for the XQuartz app.

If you don’t have it then download and install: direct link to XQuartz-2.8.1.dmg

Log out and log back in to ensure it works correctly

Just this first time, start XQuartz from Applications/Utilities/, go to the X11 menu, Preferences, Input, and turn off the Enable keyboard shortcuts under X11 or Enable key equivalents under X11 preference item. FontForge will start XQuartz automatically for you next time.

2. Install FontForge

For users of OS X 10.10 and later, download and install FontForge 2017-07-31

For users of OS X 10.09, download and install FontForge 2015-04-30

Open it and move the file to /Applications - do not move it anywhere else

Right Click (or hold the Command key and click once) and choose Open from the menu, and confirm you want to open the app

You may see a dialog box saying “Choose Application. Where is X11?” with a sort of Finder window. Find XQuartz in Applications/Utilities and click OK

Be patient while it runs a first-time setup process

FontForge will create a new font and show you its glyphs in a table:

Next time, it will open fast and in any typical way: double clicking it, drag it to the dock, using Launcher, Spotlight or Quicksilver…

When you run FontForge, its dock icon will disappear after it is launched, because it is controlled by XQuartz.


To bring fontforge’s windows to the font, click the XQuartz icon, or use Alt+Tab to switch to it.

Advanced Configuration

To make FontForge more pleasant to use, you can change some aspects of the way it works on Macs. These steps are optional.

If the hotkeys are unfamiliar, you can change them!

  1. quit FontForge (and X11, for versions prior to 2019-03-17)
  2. with your text editor, open /Applications/
  3. change the hotkeys and save the file
  4. start FontForge again

If the UI appears very big or very small, you can change the way the UI is sized.

  1. quit FontForge (and X11, for versions prior to 2019-03-17)
  2. with your text editor, open /Applications/
  3. measure the physical width of your screen in centimeters. In this example, it is 34cm wide.
  4. add a new line, Gdraw.ScreenWidthCentimeters: 34 and save the file
  5. start FontForge again
  6. if the scaling is still not right, play with the value until it is

FontForge is designed to make use of a three button mouse. It is also designed to make use of modifier keys on mouse clicks (eg, Control-left-click can mean something different than left-click.)

If you have a standard one button mouse, then you have the option of having the Mac simulate a three button mouse (for instance Option-left-click behaves like clicking the middle mouse button). Unfortunately this means you can no longer use the Option key to change the behavior of the left (only) button click. To enable this, click the XQuartz app in the Dock, and then go to X11 menu in the top left, Preferences, Input, and turn on Emulate three button mouse

If you have a two or three button mouse, then use it (and turn off Emulate three button mouse in the X11 preferences.)

Making it better

Installing your Type 1 or OpenType .otf fonts on Mac OS 8.6 to 9.2 or Mac OS X “Classic” requires ATM Light 4.6 or later (4.6.2 for Mac OS X Classic).

If you are running Mac OS X, decide if you want to install fonts into both the Classic environment and the OS X native environment. If you want your fonts to be accessible to both Classic and Carbon/native applications, install your fonts into the Classic environment. If the fonts only need to be accessible to Carbon/native applications, install into the OS X native environment instead.

Note: Do not move an entire folder containing fonts into the System location. The Mac OS can only read font files that are loose in the system font location; it can’t read files inside another folder.

To install your fonts using a font management utility (e.g., Extensis Suitcase, Font Reserve, FontAgent Pro or MasterJuggler), refer to that utility’s documentation for instructions on adding and activating the fonts.

If you are using ATM Light without a font management utility. use the following instructions to install the fonts:

Mac Os Font Download Mac

  1. Before installing your fonts, quit all active applications.
  2. Locate the fonts you want to install on your hard drive, or go to the location you downloaded the fonts to. Each font package or collection will be in its own folder.
  3. Install your fonts in the System Folder:Fonts folder by moving or copying all the font files from their individual font folders into the System Folder:Fonts folder. For PostScript Type 1 fonts, this includes both the outline font files (red A icons) and the font suitcases. Often a family of outline fonts will be associated with a single font suitcase. OpenType .otf fonts are single-file fonts, and do not include font suitcases.
  4. The fonts are now installed and will appear in the font menus of your applications.
