File type specification:

Font and typeface file type icon Font and typeface file type

afm file icon: afm filetype icon

File extension afm is used for Adobe's ASCII-based file format that is used for storing font metric data as human-readable data. AFM is the standard Adobe font file format used in Adobe software.

This format is also known as the Adobe Multiple Font Metrics (AMFM) and Adobe Composite Font Metrics (ACFM) file formats. In fact, AFM, AMFM, and ACFM are actually three variations of the same format.

The .afm files contain base or composite font information. One AFM file is used per master design of a font. AMFM files store control and global font information for a group of AFM files. And ACFM files contain the global metrics of the composite font program.
