I second the request for a search-by-name-fragment feature, without having to display all the fonts first. As far as auto-activation on Windows: Font Suitcase, the progeny of Font Reserve, can auto-activate fonts based on the contents of a document. I believe they do this via plugins for Indesign, I...

Thanks. As far as #1, I wrote a Perl script that looks for non-font files in my orig. dirs, cross-checks them with the sorted fonts in my groups folder, and renames/moves the files if a match is found. I came up with two more wishlist items: :) 1. In the Preview Text pane, I wish I could collapse re...

• Preserve Files in Folders, Collapse Group Folder Tree

Recently, I had to find a new font manager, since my old one, Typograf, has become too unstable. I test drove about a dozen font managers and Main Type came out on top, due to its speed, stability, and the nice UI. :) However, I do have two suggestions. If there's a workaround, please let me know. 1...

Whoopee! It worked. Thanks. Seems like the problem wasn't with the font, but with the caching mechanism. I'm sure the fact that the two fonts used the same name didn't help. Perhaps a better approach would be to leave the old font alone, give the modified font a new name and install it. In FC 5.5, w...

I can't create a new doc with the modified font. I get "Could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized." I can't see the font's "sample" in PS's font preview drop-down. The space next to the font's name is blank.

Are you closing Photoshop while you modify the font?
Yes, I close/open PS after each font install. BTW, I can always open the original doc in PS by reinstalling the unmodified font.

Changing a glyph & Photoshop CS2

I'm on WinXP and I'm trying to use FC 5.5 to change the contour of a single glyph, "n", in a TTF font called Mason Serif Super Bold, which I use a in a Photoshop CS2 document. I open FC, make the change, and save the font. The TTF file size changes slightly from 45.6KB to 43.8KB. I uninstall the old...
