What is the maximum number of glyphs an TrueType Font can hold?


New Member
currently I'm wondering about how many glyphs there can be in a ".ttf" file.

If I understood correctly, in a OpenType Format there can be up to 65,553 glyphs. But what about TrueType?

My research shows conflicting informationen. Some sources say it's only 256 glyphs, some say about 6000.

Does anybody knows this or have a link to an article etc.? Thank you in advance
