📌 .PFB schema is primarily oriented on the Adobe Type 1 font specification for Windows platform. On the hierarchy and internal mechanics, the .PFB constitution is quite similar to .PFA logic, considering that the font layout has been shaped and encoded in binary visual representation. In order to correctly open, handle and process the relevant font resources the .PFB items require the associated .PFM file record, as an obligatory precondition. Both of the .PFM and .PFB layouts should be allocated within the system Fonts directory in order to be correctly sustained and handled. As a bonus perk to storing diverse system fonts, .PFB file records are also exploited by AutoCAD distributive for creating respectively precompiled .SHX data elements. The .PFB records can also be effortlessly opened up, comprehended and tracked by CorelDRAW Graphics Suite graphics editor due to the native compatibility of the .PFB file extension with a formerly noted software bundle. Once again, the .PFB resources are processed in conjunction with the .PFM source records only.
📌 The .PFB content items can be splendidly opened up, visualized and processed by FontForge utility, mainly targeted for flexible, vivid creation, editing and converting fonts to the desired shape. In addition to .PFB file logic, FontForge magnificently comprehends the .WOFF, .FNT, .DFONT, .UFO, .OTF, .TTC, and .TTF data structures. Besides, you can make an attempt to give a try to AutoCAD suite, which is also perfectly adapted for tracking and exploring the actual record hierarchy. At last, one more possible case of the .PFB file schema employment is related to the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite package, smoothly handling all of required operations and tasks with the format samples. In any case, the noted file instances can be monitored and handled within desktop operating environments only, while desktop systems are not adapted for processing and sustainment of the relevant schema constitution. In short, the .PFB object entities are maintained and operated only in a bunch with associated .PFM entries, serving to track and monitor the correct representation of font symbols and their proper outlines.
