AFM file extension - Adobe font metrics
What is afm file? How to open afm files?
File type specification:
afm file icon:
The afm file extension is used for Adobe's ASCII-based file format that is used for storing font metric data as human-readable data. The AFM is the standard Adobe font file format.
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.
This format is probably still used in Adobe products.
