Source Han Sans (CodePlex Un-Official Mirror)

Source Han Sans is a set of OpenType/CFF Pan-CJK fonts. In addition to functional OpenType fonts, this open source project provides all of the source files that were used to build these OpenType fonts by using the AFDKO makeotf and otf2otc tools.
  • Please be advised that this is a mirrored copy from Adobe official Source Han Sans GitHub repository and is for those people who don't have access to GitHub. The source files for compiling official Source Han Sans font files are not changed.
  • Since CodePlex won't allow people to have a good experience downloading binary assets via its source control, we don't use release branch here but use the "DOWNLOADS" page instead.

Download the fonts (OTF, OTC, Super OTC, Subset OTF)

We only host the most-recent release on CodePlex, please check the "DOWNLOADS" section.

You may also want to check: For information about the various deployment configurations, and to help decide which fonts to download, please refer to the Configurations section of the official font readme file. You could also download it here at the page "ReadMe and Additional Files - 1.004".

Font installation instructions

  • OS X | Please always install into /Library/Fonts/ folder, not ~/Library/Fonts/.
  • Windows | Only OTF files are supported, not OpenType collection (OTC) files.
  • Linux/Unix-based systems | For system wide installation, copy the fonts to /usr/share/fonts and run sudo fc-cache to rebuild the font cache, or for user local installation, make sure ~/.fonts exists, copy them into there, then rebuild the font cache.

Building the fonts from source

> Build all fonts
  • In this repository, all necessary files are in place for building the OpenType/CFF and OpenType/CFF Collection fonts. The COMMANDS.txt file provides the command lines that are used to build the OTFs and OTCs.
