Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Hi again Erwin - I resorted to running Process Lasso (https://bitsum.com) to ratchet the Font Management Service CPU usage down, but of course I would prefer to not have to run a resource-using 3rd-party utility just to control the Font Management Service. I know you're busy... do you have any other...

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Hi Erwin - Registry Fixer finds one issue (Dorico Icons Regular is a duplicate) but that doesn't need to be fixed because the application Dorico itself keeps two copies of the font, which is by design. Please note that the MainType application (listed as "MainType - Windows Font Manager" in the Apps...

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Thanks, Erwin. Yes, I like to use the font manager for categorization and organization, but then I have all my most-used fonts already installed for quick and easy access. I use your software as a reference book for fonts, so to speak. My main drive (where your application and the system, including ...

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Thanks again for your quick reply, Erwin. I have 2,466 fonts installed. My questions would be: - Is that considered a large number of fonts? - Is there any way to reduce the intervals, especially when MainType itself is not in use? - Perhaps is there a way for the checks to be more efficient on CPU ...

Hi Erwin - thank you for your swift reply.

There are currently no folders listed in the Font Folders panel.

High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Thanks for the great software! Not sure whether to post here or in another section, but since the application is exhibiting unwanted behavior, I chose here. I am using MainType 7.0.0 build 1032. Every few minutes, the High Logic Font Management Service spins up to consume 15-20% of CPU. This is on a...

Re: Feature Request: scrolling works even when panel is not in focus

Thanks, Bhikkhu!

I would prefer the scrolling to work even when panels are docked.

Feature Request: scrolling works even when panel is not in focus

Currently, scrolling (with mouse wheel, for example) only works for the panel that is highlighted / in focus. I would like to be able to move the cursor over various parts of the MainType interface and scroll whatever panel the cursor is hovering over, without having to first click to focus the panel.

Re: Feature Request: floating type sample

Bhikkhu, thank you for this swift reply. Much appreciated!

Yes, I saw that and this does help. Of course, the original request would be more precisely what I am seeking (without having to change background colors to match destination comp, etc.).

Re: Batch Rename fonts in Folder

Bhikkhu, thank you for the swift reply.

Yes, I saw that the fonts can be exported, renamed as the font name from metadata. It would be nice to have more control over the result (appends; concatenation of metadata; etc.) to make this a full renaming feature.

Feature Request: dark theme

Thanks for the great software! I would like to have an option for a dark theme which would create a darker GUI environment (and preferably with white-ish font views). Preferably, the theme would be able to be quickly activated with a prominent button somewhere so a quick flip back-and-forth could oc...

Feature Request: copy character as vector image

I really enjoy that a character can be copied directly, or as an image, from the Characters panel.

I would also like to be able to copy a character as a vector image. (Copying vector with design points would be a bonus.) This would be an incredible timesaver in certain design situations.
