Re: Batch Rename fonts in Folder

Bhikkhu, you mentioned that there are several freeware tools that you use to achieve the results you want.

Could you list a few of those?

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Thanks for looking at the report.

I just wanted to clarify: At this time, are you looking into this further, or was there something I should be looking into as well?

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Erwin, thanks for providing this method of generating error reports.

I sent you the .dat file via PM.

I note that, while adding the ********* group did successfully generate the Error .dat file, the High-Logic Font Management Service is still running after doing so.

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

The spikes usually last anywhere from 5 to 20 seconds, every 2-3 minutes.

I note that CraftedDesigns reported seeing this issue as well (see previous post).

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Thanks, Erwin. I have 2,485 fonts installed. The CPU spikes are still significant on a system that is also used for realtime production tasks. I don't like having ≈20%+ CPU being used so often to check for font changes when I very rarely change my font installation. I'm not installing fonts every fe...

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Thanks, Erwin.

With MainType 9.0.0.1176, CPU spikes occur every 2-3 minutes, even when the MainType application window is closed. This version seems to be spiking less dramatically (in terms of % CPU) but still hovers in the 15% - 20% range on average.

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

I confirm that in MainType 9.0 this issue is worse.

This is representative of the periodic CPU spiking occurring even while the MainType app isn't running:

Re: Comparing fonts

From my viewpoint, I appreciate the Print Preview feature, but I would strongly prefer an in-line, main interface solution as discussed above.

I am interested in upgrading to version 8, but this is one of those features I'd really like to see implemented.

Re: Comparing fonts

Thanks, Erwin. I also hope more users join this discussion.

Even if the precise way I suggested is not implemented, my question to you would be: Can you devise a quicker, easier way of instant font comparisons rather than having to tag/untag fonts?
