Re: Spacing between lines

Excel is something special, it seems it has never been updated in the last two decades, so works in mysterious ways.

You could try to ask support at Microsoft.

Short Downtime due to Drive Failure

We had a short downtime (less than half an hour) due to a drive failure. Nothing is lost (we have a mirror drive in Raid), but it had to be replaced. All is now back to normal.

Re: License for MainType 10 in 32bit?

MainType runs on Windows 10, 8, and 7 and we offer both a 32-bit and a 64-bit version.

If you are the only person who uses the software, then you only need one license.

We offer upgrades for existing customers.

Re: TTFautohint - settings

I do not think there is such setting. It might work to slightly increase the Win Ascent value.

Re: Opening installed fonts - some of mine are not listed

Windows has evolved over the years and your version of FontCreator does not support user based font installations.

Re: Faulty results in Word and others

Sounds indeed strange. If it is a bug in FontCreator we would love to have the chance to fix it. So if you still have a copy of your font project with the issue, do send it.

Re: Maintype 5.1.2.701 on win10

That version is 8 years old, so no wonder it has compatibility issues. Still nice to know you have been able to install it on Windows 10. More recent versions of Windows introduced per user font installations and variable fonts. Both are not supported in older versions of MainType. Besides this, a l...

Re: Unable to open the Opentype Designer due to "argument out of range"

It works just fine here.

Maybe you have a specific preview text that is causing the issue. Can you open the OpenType Designer with another font, and then change the preview text. Then try to open this font?
