How to Use Adobe Type Manager Deluxe on Windows 7 64-bit
Adobe Type Manager Deluxe (ATM) is a software program that allows you to manage and preview fonts on your computer. It was originally designed for Windows 95 and 98, but it can also work on Windows 7 64-bit with some tweaks. Here are the steps to install and use ATM on Windows 7 64-bit:
Download the latest version of ATM from Adobe's website. The file name should be atm_410.exe.
Right-click on the downloaded file and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and check the box that says \"Run this program in compatibility mode for:\" and choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3) from the drop-down menu. Click OK.
Double-click on the file to run the installer. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.
Restart your computer.
Open ATM from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut. You should see a window with a list of fonts installed on your system.
To add new fonts, click on the Add Fonts button and browse to the folder where you have stored your fonts. You can also drag and drop fonts into the ATM window.
To preview fonts, select a font from the list and click on the Preview button. You can change the size, style, and color of the font in the preview window.
To remove fonts, select a font from the list and click on the Remove Fonts button. You can also right-click on a font and choose Delete.
ATM is a useful tool for managing and previewing fonts on your Windows 7 64-bit system. However, it is not compatible with some newer font formats, such as OpenType or TrueType Collection. If you encounter any problems with ATM, you can try using other font management software, such as FontExpert or NexusFont.
ATM also has some advanced features that can help you customize and optimize your fonts. Here are some of them:
To create font sets, click on the Font Sets button and choose New. You can name your font set and add fonts to it by dragging and dropping them from the font list. Font sets allow you to group fonts by category, project, or preference.
To activate or deactivate fonts, select a font or a font set from the list and click on the Activate or Deactivate button. Activating fonts makes them available to other applications, while deactivating them frees up memory and disk space.
To organize fonts by folder, click on the Options button and choose Preferences. Go to the Fonts tab and check the box that says \"Organize fonts by folder\". This will create subfolders in your ATM folder based on the font names.
To print font samples, select a font or a font set from the list and click on the Print button. You can choose the layout, size, and content of the font samples in the print dialog box.
