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?

Re: Feature Request: option to prebuild cache of previews

HI Erwin - Is this something that could be added as an optional setting for certain users who really need it? I understand there may be disadvantages that would be concerning to the average user. But for a power user, perhaps they're willing to trade off those disadvantages for the advantages that c...

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Yes, every few minutes, "High-Logic Font management Service" spikes to anywhere between ~5% to ~20% of CPU. It's not consistent in the amplitude of the spike, but the spikes consistently occur every few minutes.

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 ...

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...

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.).
