What is the difference between .ttf and .ttc files? I also appreciate the images to understand better. Thank you very much to everyone.

ttc stands for "TrueType Collection" and is a collection of multiple true type fonts (ttf) in one file


TTF is a TrueType Font, while TTC is TrueType Collection. TTC is the collection of several TTF compositing files.


Also, Windows doesn't know what to do with .TTC files, so if you are compiling fonts to include with a document, keep that in mind.

    That is incorrect. Cambria.ttc, for example, is a standard font supplied with Windows and used in default Microsoft Word templates. It contains the two fonts "Cambria Regular" and "Cambria Math".
