They also want to see FontCreator 9 beta, which I haven't send yet. So I guess I'm part of the delay.

Are there any updates from MyFonts yet?...
Also, have they start testing the beta version yet?...

I provided the beta version, but unfortunately I've been told the review team who is in charge of this, has not enough time right now :cry:

I send another reminder email last week, but so far I haven't heard back.

Since FontCreator 9 is currently the most advanced OpenType font editor with respect to OpenType layout features, it really makes me sad that even though I've made several attempts to kindly push the people at myfonts.com, they haven't responded to my emails for over two months :cry:

I won't give up, but I don't want to mail them every week, as then they might accuse me of being impatient...

I'm considering a petition if this month goes by without any positive news from there side.

To be continued.

I cannot fathom the reason for the delay from MyFonts. Seems pretty stupid on their part. Their delay makes it seem as if they have an agenda.

As a last resort I've just send another email to my contact at Monotype.

I've got a reply very fast. The person responsible for the MyFonts review team seems to be on vacation. I hope they don't come up with other excuses when he returns.

You could always beat them at their own game by creating a competing site for FontCreator users to sell their fonts via High-Logic. Maybe that is something you could add to YourFonts.com?

MyFonts makes a hefty 50% commission on all of the fonts sold through their site.

Creative Market sells fonts as well. As well as dozens of other foundries where I have purchased fonts made with FC--I know because I have had to fix way too many of them.

But MyFonts has the biggest market share. Which is why even all the big foundries sell through them.

MyFonts has just included FontCreator. So it is now one of the recommended font editors!

That's great news, Erwin! It's just a pity it took them so long.
