Re: Adobe Indesign CS6 Plugin "crashes"

That's the worst news ever. Some graphic designers are attentive to details and could do this. But most that I've worked with are the worst at doing things like organizing files and creating font groups—they're hired for their brilliance and creativity, not for their attention to the mundane and ted...

Re: Adobe Indesign CS6 Plugin "crashes"

So I had a CS6 8.1 / Windows 10 1803 machine that I upgraded to MainType 8 and the HLFontHandler v1.2 last week and everything worked fine, until I upgraded to Windows 10 1809 yesterday. Then this problem started happening on that machine too. Nothing else changed. By the way, HLFontHandler v1.1 (at...

Re: Adobe Indesign CS6 Plugin "crashes"

I have had to remove the MainType plugin too, as it was causing the same problem with many dialogs instantly disappearing. I am on on Win7 x64 Pro , using Indesign CS6 8.0.2 which is the latest release available, at least to non-CC members. Thanks Richard Same problem here. This is a HUGE problem o...

Re: Minor edit majorly changing font

Aww that's really too bad. It would be nice if metadata like this could be added without changing the font!

It would also be nice if on any edit the original CCF outlines and hinting could be preserved as far as possible.

Minor edit majorly changing font

I made a very minor edit to an OpenType font: I added a new Stylistic Set. And Exported the font back to an .OTF file. However it's rendering significantly differently, and not as well. Left is original, right is after edit in FontCreator Pro 9.0 (Build 1916) Font-Changes.png Is there some setting I...

Re: Maintype won't start

Thanks, I hope so too--this issue of having 5 different people all working on the same publications needing the same fonts doesn't seem like too unusual of a situation to make provision for. MainType 2.1.1 has worked due to the fact that it's disk based and so shortcuts, symbolic links, file synchro...

Re: Maintype won't start

Wow. :| We needed to install, "Mirekusoft Install Monitor" in order to debug a completely unrelated program from another vendor that was not installing/uninstalling correctly. Given the clue you gave in the previous post I temporarily uninstalled it, and MainType started normally as before. Do you h...

Re: Maintype won't start

Windows 7 x64. It's running on 5 Windows 7 x64 machines here without any compatibility issues. It was running fine on this machine until this morning. Just quit working without warning.

Are there logs or verbose/debug startup or events to check or anything to get an idea what's going on?

Maintype won't start

Due to the impossible problem with font groups and font sharing in the later versions of MainType (see: http://forum.high-logic.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3599 ) we're running MainType 2.1.1. It's been working fine. But today on one of our machines it won't start. I get the UAC dialog. And that's it. ...

Re: Best way to share fonts/groups in MainType 4

Any change / improvement in this yet? We've uninstalled the v4 we purchased multiple licenses for, and are (rather unhappily) back on v2 at the moment due to this problem.

Thanks,

Tony

Best way to share fonts/groups in MainType 4

We recently upgraded to MaintType 4 in our small publishing office. In previous versions, we sync'd our fonts library folder and groups (shortcuts) folders between workstations so that we all had the same groups and the same fonts. If someone added a font to a group, we just sync'd the folders and b...

2/375 probably means 2 OpenType fonts of 375 fonts installed.
Brilliant. :p Wish all problems were this easy to fix! :oops:

Font List Fails To Load Completely

Hi, I've been using MainType for quite a while, and am now running 2.1 which has also been working great for some time. Suddenly today, it won't load the entire font list. On the active tab it stops at 2/375. On the Browse tab it stops at various numbers depending on which folder I browse to. For ex...
