Would you please provide a Checksum Hash for each of your download files for security purposes?

Thanks

Try downloading the installer again. The latest version is build 8.0.0.1186 released on 19th January.
Would you please double check that is not a beta version?
When I download it indicates version 8.0.0.1126 is latest public release, which is consistent with "MainType - Release History" web page.

Re: New User - Can't Figure Out How Remove Fonts from My Library

The easiest method is to uninstall, delete the font vault, and reinstall it. I think this is one of the major flaws in MainType (both free & paid version). Having to uninstall/reinstall to delete fonts from the library is an unacceptable method in my opinion. This procedure should only have to be r...

In an other post on Wed May 17, 2017 10:07 am (http://forum.high-logic.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=7183) Bhikkhu Pesala states The current version is 7.0 build 1038.

Re: Updating

I found the Release History page does show the new release. However, when I access the MainType Download Page, the file that is downloaded is named "MainTypeSetup.exe" and when displaying its file properties, Details tab, it states it is "File version 7.0.0.0" .

You did not answer the question Bhikkhu.

How did you obtain build 1026?

Re: Updating

Bhikkhu: How did you come by build 1026? Did you get that version by using the "Check for Updates" feature in the Help menu, or by some other means?

Would others please check and report back as to what version they are running and how they obtained?

Thanks

I have MT Standard v 7.0.0 build 1012 installed on a PC that does not have an internet connection. 1. How can I check whether I have the most current version? Using the "Check for Updates" feature in the Help menu does not work since I have no internet connection. 2. I noticed in one of the Forum po...

How to Contact a Board Administrator While Not Logged In

I recently had the dilemma of needing to contact a Board Administrator regarding my inability to log in to the Forum, but there is no apparent way to do this without first logging in. A real “Catch 22” situation. I was finally able to contact Erwin Denissen at High-Logic Customer Support, but it wou...

Activation of Email Address

When changing an email address associated with a username, the forum system automatically deactivates the username and sends an email message to the new address with a new activation code url link. If this new activation link is not accessed, the username stays inactive and the user cannot log in. T...

Re: Virtual Helvetica Fonts Appearing

Can you save the font files through MainType? I was able to save all the virtual fonts (main menu: File | Save Font As ... ). When I examined the Helvetica family of virtual fonts which were saved with MainType, they appear to be identical to the *.pfb files for the corresponding Helvetica Type 1 f...

Re: Notify Me upon Replies

Upon further investigation of this problem, I have concluded the problem is caused by my ISP, AT&T Worldnet (i.e., domain: att.net) intercepting and not delivering emails sent from the Forum. When I changed my email address to any other with a different domain name, I received the email alert. Since...

Re: Virtual Helvetica Fonts Appearing

Upon further investigation into the matter of my post, I find that a similar behavior is being exhibited by MainType for another Type 1 font: Times . As with the Helvetica font, this font was provided by HP for my Laser Jet printer. Its .pfm and a .pfb file sizes are 1,806 and 32,976 bytes. Installi...

Re: Virtual Helvetica Fonts Appearing

Dave, thank you for your thoughts on this matter. I do not follow how your Wikipedia reference relates to my problem. [BTW, you should edit the url to include the ending “)” as otherwise the hot link fails]. The Wikipedia reference only has to do with which fonts are displayed in an HTML page. I do ...
