Installing legacy Font Suitcase files

You can still install old fonts in Font Suitcase in macOS Catalina

Do you have any old CDs/DVDs of old fonts? Wonder if it's still possible to use them? Are they in the legacy Font Suitcase format.

Good News! You can still use them in the latest version of macOS (macOS version 10.15.5). When you double click on the file it won't be discovered by any application in the system.

Font Suitcase Catalina

How to import Fonts in legacy Font Suitcase into your computer

  1. Open the Font Book application
  2. Go to File > Open
  3. Find the file that you want to import
  4. Select it and click Choose

That's it!

I have found that my Fontographer fonts work well in any application. I was able to use them in Affinity Designer, Swift Publisher and OmniGraffle.

As someone who has worked on Macs since 1989, I will use my experience to share tips and tricks with you on Fridays. As a Mac user since 1989, I have seen the evolution of Mac software and hardware, and I know how Mac computers work. I also know how to troubleshoot and fix Mac problems that can arise.
