TrueType is an outline font standard developed by Apple and Microsoft in the late 1980s as a competitor to Adobe's Type 1 fonts used in PostScript. It has become the most common format for fonts on the classic Mac OS, macOS, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Squeak supports the TrueType font format with the TTCFont class.
TrueType support was improved in Squeak 6.0. See Apps > FontImporterTool to get started. If you want to learn about the programming interface, take a look at:
