    Mac OS "Copperplate" match?

    I've inherited an FLA from another design, who used a Mac. Two of the fonts that I'm missing are:

    Copperplate
    Copperplate Light

    The only information I've found on plain Copperplate is that is seems to be one of the fonts that comes with the Mac OS -- it's slightly different than the Copperplate Gothic fonts from Adobe.

    The problem, of course, is that I'm on a PC, and I haven't been able to find an exact match on the Mac Copperplate fonts. I could use a near-match, but all they want me to do is delete a menu item. Having to redo all of the other menu items would be a real PITA.

    Does anyone know how I can get PC versions of these fonts?

    thanks!

    You can have your client purchase the font for you. It's available for PC as well as MAC

    Thanks FFF. I had seen that one before, but I didn't know that was the same one that was included in the MacOS. Identifont has it listed seperately from the one that comes with MacOSX.

    There's a zillion of them that I found.

    Copperplate
    Copperplate Gothic
    EF Copperplate
    Copperplate SH
    Copperplate SB

    And then Adobe has a whole set with really funny names like:

    Copperplate-TwentyNineAB
    Copperplate-TwentyNineBC
    Copperplate-ThirtyOneAB

    etc. Very weird. I can't tell what matches and what doesn't.

    This can be very annoying.... I just had the same problem with a font I bought and that there were too many versions with differnet names, I ended up buying several versions until I've found the correct one.

    Sorry that I cannot help you more in this situation.

    No problem -- I'll let the client worry about it
