Re: Fonts don't delete

Some more testing... the Read Only tagging is not caused by MainType but it's a Windows thing I will have to investigate a bit. Having said that, MainType should still be able to delete these files depending on what access rights it assigns itself. If it is using the user's rights it should be fine.

Re: Fonts don't delete

Thanks for that. Still a problem though. I noticed the font folders had been given the Read Only attribute so ok I removed that, tried a Library Refresh and the Read Only tag was back. This is only on network folders (NTFS). As an experiment I copied some fonts to a local drive and was able to succe...

Time for some praise

I have watched the development of MainType with eagerness and hope. It is time to give real praise for the developers of my favourite, yes favourite piece of software. I have been an IT genius and guru (well that's what my wife thinks) for … uh a lot of years, so the way a piece of software feels, r...

Re: Fonts don't delete

4 years on and MainType is much better. I returned to using it once this issue was (supposedly) resolved. I am so disappointed that it still has problems deleting fonts. I have over 50,000 fonts and periodically cleanout old versions. Option 1 on the Delete Fonts panel states: Delete the selected fo...

Re: Fonts don't delete

What about the possibility of exporting tags and custom views? If we could do this, delete the database, import the current font folders and custom views that may be a work around. Your software is good. It's clean and very fast because you are using a database. For these reasons I prefer MainType o...

Re: Fonts don't delete

We did implement the feature because numerous users did request it. It now works more-or-less like deleting files from Windows, as those can also be recovered from the Recycle Bin. The only thing missing right now is a way to permanently delete fonts. I'm not sure how we could implement it without ...

Re: Fonts don't delete

Well that has partially worked. It does delete the file but still leaves the font in the MainType store. Can you have another look at this please? Purging old and unwanted fonts is important. It should also be removed from your Views. It should only remain available through the Ignored Fonts dialog...

Re: Fonts don't delete

Please download and install this release and let us know your results. http://www.high-logic.com/tmp/MainTypeSetup7.0.0.1026.exe Thank you but unfortunately no difference. The fonts are stored on a network folder with full access rights and the MainType database is in the default local location. Ev...

Re: Fonts don't delete

Yes as I stated in my original post this is the option I am using. I am getting no error messages. The fonts aren't locked by Windows as I can delete them manually without problems. I have just tried the same thing from my laptop with the same result.

Re: Fonts don't delete

Thank you for the suggestion but no there is no error message. The system is Windows 10 Pro and the drive locations have full read / write access. Rebooting has no effect.

Fonts don't delete

I am using MainType to delete fonts and selecting the third option to supposedly remove the font from MainType, delete from the hard disk and add the font name to the ignore list. However, the font is not deleted from the hard drive and must be manually removed. I then tried unignoring fonts to see ...
