Over 300 of the fonts i have in my folder are not showing up. Indicates several hundred less in library than in font files, how to get it to recognize them, please?
Probably exact duplicates or corrupt font files.

Re: .dat files filling the hard drive

The auto install feature has a maximum per sync folder.

This is to prevent a system from accidentally flooding it with fonts.

We are interested in your broken fonts to further improve MainType.

Re: Setting Unicode ranges - why combined?

This is how it is defined in the OpenType font specification. It allows for at most 128 blocks, but currently Unicode has 280 blocks defined.

It is still important, so in general keep the "auto" feature enabled.

Re: Subscript and Superscript font files

I think Word's superscript feature will always scale the whole character, so that won't work.

If you only use the font for personal use then you might be able to use private use area characters.

Re: REQUEST: RTL in Preview

To activate RTL do start the text with a Arabic character with a valid Unicode code point.

Re: Duplication of Anchors

I do see them, but I don't know how to reproduce this issue, so it is hard to find a fix for it.

Re: Font file preview is blank but font installed correctly...

If a similar font is already installed, windows might show that font instead of your font. So uninstall all previous versions.

Re: Communicating with developers team

In general we don't respond to unsolicited messages. Usually even reading them is a waste of time. In your case I did read it, but couldn't see any benefits.

We are not interested in optimizing algorithms right now.
