Re: refresh performance of a large font folder

I just purchased and installed the new (MainType 8.0) version. Unfortunately things didn't improve regarding this issue with folder refreshing (quite the contrary). Whenever I want to add a font to my 120k fonts library I have to wait about 30 minutes for MainType to finish it's refresh process of t...

Display Several Samples at Once

Being able to have several samples displayed at once with their own setting for: size, margins, line-height, colors,... would be better.

That way we would be able to evaluate the quality of a font for several usages (body text, titles,...) at once.

Re: Characters pane glyph selection not kept when switching font

yes, that would already be a welcome improvement.
I suppose matching the same character would be a step further (not knowing if that's even possible)

Characters pane glyph selection not kept when switching font

whenever I select a font the selected glyph in the Characters pane (and consequently in the Zoom pane) is reset to the first entry 0x00. (which is almost always empty)
It would be so much better if (like in the character mode) the glyph selection would be maintained between fonts

Ok, would some kind of margin be part of the little parameters it offers, and if yes, would you consider adding some default margin to it ?

right now this is hurting me plenty...

• Sample pane small improvements - for a huge difference

I find the sample pane to do a poor job at providing a realistic paragraph/block of text preview and I'm having a very hard time to evaluate the quality of a font for a block of text usage with it. Here are 2 suggestion that would make a great difference: Allow us to specify margin/padding for the p...

Re: refresh performance of a large font folder

I think you should organise your font collection so that MainType only has to refresh those folders that are likely to change. My font library is tightly organized, it consist of OTF files only, structured like so: + FONT LIBRARY | + FoundryName | | + FamilyName | | | FontName-bold.otf | | | FontNa...

Re: refresh performance of a large font folder

ok, but isn't there room for improvement here ?
most library manager (be it music or pictures) even when dealing with large libraries don't impose a 7 minutes delay every time you import new items.
