Some Typefi products support Apple devices with Apple Silicon M1 processors:
|Typefi Designer||Typefi Designer 8.7.2 or later|
|Typefi AutoFit||Typefi AutoFit 8.7.2 or later|
|Typefitter||Typefitter 5.0.1 or later|
Typefi Server 8.7.x is only compatible with Apple silicon-based systems using Rosetta 2 emulation. While an Apple ARM64-compatible build of OpenJDK 16 exists, Typefi Server 8.7.x requires OpenJDK 11, which does not natively support Apple ARM64-based systems.
Rosetta 2 is an emulator built into macOS Big Sur (version 11) that allows apps built for Intel chips to run on Apple devices with M1 processors.
To run an app using Rosetta 2 on an Apple M1 computer:
- Open Finder and navigate to the app you want to open.
- Control-click the app.
- Select Get Info.
- Select Open in Rosetta.
- Open the app as normal.
NOTE Apps may initially take longer to open while Rosetta 2 translates them for use on your M1 computer.
