MF file extension - Metafont text file

What is mf file? How to open mf files?

File type specification:

Text file type icon Text file type

The MF file extension is related to METAFONT, the dark but indispensable brother of TEX, the well known typesetting program written by Donald E. Knuth.

Where TEX (most often through its son LATEX) works in the light, putting your words together in beautifully typeset documents, fully justified, with automatically generated tables of contents (and so many other features), METAFONT works in the shadows, doing the dirty work of generating the fonts your documents are typeset with, and without which you wouldn’t get anything but empty pages.

The default software associated to mf file type:

LaTeX icon

LaTeX  Microsoft Windows software

Company or developer:
  LaTeX Project Development Team

LaTeX is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting. It is used to create medium-to-large technical or scientific documents but it can be used for almost any form of publishing.

Help how to open MF files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension MF:

As far as we know, this .mf file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
