What is an .DFONT file?

The dfont file extension is used for a Data Fork Suitcase file format used in Mac OS X (macOS). Data fork suitcases must have the filename extension dfont.

They may optionally be given the file type DFON.

One of the innovations offered by Mac OS X (macOS) is that font suitcases can be completely stored in a file's data fork. All of the resource fork's data is stored in the data fork, which allows more efficient access to font data as well as the ability to copy font suitcases to and from file systems that do not recognize resource forks.

The data fork suitcase format is different from the data fork TrueType font format used by Microsoft Windows. Data fork suitcases contain all of the resources associated with a Macintosh font, including 'FOND' and 'NFNT' resources, which are used with QuickDraw Text.

A dfont file extension is associated with the Mac Data Fork Suitcase Format. A dfont file stores font.

How to open:
