I currently have a PC but I am switching to a MAC, will my font files transfer?
P22 font data is platform specific. While there are instances where the font data may work on both MAC and PC platforms, P22 does not offer support for cross-platform issues. The P22 End User License Agreement requires that the MAC and PC be purchased separately. If you are simply switching platforms, there is no cost. However, if you require the use of both the MAC and PC formats, there is a Dual Platform Fee. The Dual Platform fee is a discounted fee that can be calculated by subtracting 50% from the base selling price. For example, if you are currently registered for Cezanne PC format and would like the MAC data, the cost is $15. You can obtain the Dual Platform License by sending an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
