Autp Remove font duplicates

Postby rightangle » Fri Nov 27, 2009 5:35 am

Main Type is a groovy program! Thank you. I cheerfuly promise to tell all my freinds. The good folks @ High-Logic deserve to be absurdly wealthy with such nice work.

It'd be great to automatically remove all dupicate fonts with an option to select removals by file date.

Be careful what you wish for. Automatic can destroy your collection.

What if you liked the old version better than the new one, but now the old version is gone?
What if someone tries to make a new version and gives up before completion and you end up with that version as your only one.
What if . . . The list gets longer and longer.

Finally, one that has fowled me up more than once, many font creating individuals make new fonts and unknowingly give them names that are already in use. When one of these automatically saves over the top of one of my great fonts, GAAHHHHH!
