Adobe Type Manager 4.x

Adobe Type Manager was designed to provide scalable fonts on early Mac and Windows 3.0 systems that did not provide similar functionality natively. ATM is required by a number of graphics application originally designed to work in these environments. ATM is packaged as a "lite" installable runtime. Later releases offer a "Deluxe" version with extra font management abilities. Other OSes including NeXTSTEP, DESQview, and OS/2 come with ATM functionality built-in.

ATM 4.x adds native support for Windows 9x and NT, and drops support for Windows 3.1. It will run under Windows 2000/XP, but Vista and later integrate Adobe Type 1 font support.

Note: There are known bugs when upgrading from ATM 4.0 to 4.1.x on Windows. If you need ATM under Windows 9x, NT or later you should install 4.1.2, or a later Deluxe version.

The final versions of the "lite" runtime version (4.1.2 for Win 9x/NT, and 4.5.2 for Mac) were downloadable from Adobe's FTP site.
