Johnny Hereford What's up with the download? You can't open it. If you can't open it, then you can't use it.

s User Windows PCs can use OpenType Fonts, (Microsoft helped develop them!) so why not offer a download in a zip file as well for Windows users??

12345 User To Windows PC users - If you would like to use these nice fonts, the easiest way is...

1. Download 7-Zip from and extract the .pkg, you download from BitsDuJour, then will get a Payload~ file, simply extract that to.
2. Navigate to C:\Users\YOUR_NAME_GOES_HERE\Desktop\MacFonts-EssentialFonts-November2015\Payload~~\\Contents\Resources\Fonts
3. There you will find all the fonts (OpenType font file) with preview images (JPEG)

Thank you BitsDuJour and Macware, Inc for this very nice giveaway of fonts and I aplogize if this tip is not allowed on BitsDuJour.

Jo Ann Rice I should have taken the hint when I notice now that not a single post came from any support for this product. This product itself is fine, but there is no support at all for anything to do with this company.

When you download your product their website gives you a message saying that if you Register your product you will receive a free set of Business Fonts. That never happens.

They also sent an email giving you a free font for purchasing, and that button leads to an expired page that isn't even setup correctly so you cannot get this one either.

I've sent them 3 emails, put in a support ticket and posted on their Facebook page, I think I've done plenty to attempt to contact them about these things, but they have answered none of them at all.

So Buyer Beware here if this deal or any other ends up not being really cheap or free, there is NO support coming from this company at all.
