Re: How do I browse?

Isn't there any way to browse? For me, it would be a huge undertaking to recreate everything within the font library. I probably have over 400,000 fonts, all neatly organized in folders by designer, foundry and/or style. I just want to be able to use MainType to view the fonts within my folders.....

Re: Need info on Matching data in Main type to Font Creator

I don't think that's what I'm looking for. In the attached font, the drop down in the font settings within Font Creator is blank. Bring up the same font in Main Type. In the information panel, under general, the foundry is identified as Signfonts. That's what I'm trying to find in Font Creator..... ...

Need info on Matching data in Main type to Font Creator

Hello All,
In Main Type, in the Information pane under General there is a listing for Foundry.
Using Font Creator, how can I modify that info? Actually I want to add the foundry name to several fonts so they will sort properly by foundry.
Clear as mud????
Thanks for any and all help.. :)

Move to folder function

Hello!
I just upgraded to 3.0. The "move to folder" command doesn't seem to be functioning. I tried both the button on the toolbar and the command in the Edit menu. The "copy to folder" command works fine.
Is it just me????
I'm using Windows XP.
Thanks!

Re: Enlarging glyphs

I did see that thread but I was totally lost. What is em value? Where do I change this value as per the instructions? Isn't there a way to globally change glyph sizes in Glyph Transformer?

Enlarging glyphs

I like to use Fontstruct.com to start the process of creating a font. However, sometimes the glyphs are really small when I open the font in Font Creator (6.0.1 build 108). How can I make the glyphs larger without resizing each one individually? Thanks! Diane (sorry if this has been explained elsewh...

Conflict Issues with Acrobat Distiller?

Hello! I have been using Main Type to organize my gazillion fonts. The only issue I have is I keep getting a pop-up window telling me Acrobat Distiller needs to shut down. It doesn't cause any major problems (that I know of) but is really really annoying - Main Type processing slows way down right b...
