Re: feature request: "Select Duplicates" feature in a folder view

Thanks, Erwin. If a user wants to de-duplicate a single folder, not against the entire library but just within that folder, and doesn't want to add them to the library and mess around with tagging... What would your recommendation be for the best solution? Understood that your tool may not be positi...

Re: feature request: "Select Duplicates" feature in a folder view

Thanks Erwin.

To be more specific, the current request is to identify fonts in a single folder which are considered duplicates within that single folder.

The request is not to de-duplicate that folder against the whole font library, but rather just to de-duplicate fonts within that folder.

Re: feature request: "Select Duplicates" feature in a folder view

Bhikkhu and Erwin, thank you for the notes. Much appreciated. Even for a user who utilizes tags frequently, sometimes that user doesn't want to tag fonts, but instead just to work with folders. Having to manually tag "These fonts are in this folder" or something similar can be a tedious ex...

Re: limit Library to fonts in system folder and actively attached folders

Erwin, many thanks. That's a clever way to achieve the needed results without too much hassle. For ongoing work, is there a way to "take a look at" a variety of folders in MainType without adding them to the Library? Basically, the user wants to review a group of fonts from time to time wi...

Re: feature request: File Path column in main fonts view

Excellent point. Perhaps in the situation where an identical font exists in multiple folders, the proposed column would show: "Font exists in multiple paths. Click here to view list." If the user clicked, a list would pop up showing the various locations, which could be selectable for copy...

feature request: File Path column in main fonts view

Please add File Path as an optional column in the main fonts view.

This would show the full path and filename of the font.

Re: limit Library to fonts in system folder and actively attached folders

Erwin, thank you. Yes, the problem is: Let's suppose the user has already added and removed a dozen folders with a few hundred fonts in them each. At this point, the user doesn't remember exactly which fonts in the Library came from which folders. Therefore, the user doesn't know which fonts to sele...

Re: limit Library to fonts in system folder and actively attached folders

Bhikkhu Pesala, thanks for the quick response. If the user wants to fully remove the group from MainType, but wants to keep the fonts on the hard drive (because they are a part of multiple temporary-use collections), what is the best strategy? Essentially, the user wants the MainType Library to only...

feature request: "Select Duplicates" feature in a folder view

Currently, the "Select Duplicates" feature is only available in Library view.

Would it be possible to implement it to operate on an individual folder view?

limit Library to fonts in system folder and actively attached folders

Use Case: The user is reviewing various folders of fonts. User adds the folders in MainType to review the fonts, then removes the folders. User also wants to remove these folders' fonts from the Library. User wants the Library to only represent, at any given time, (a) the font folders actively attac...

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?
