Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

Thank both of you, but you misunderstood my meaning, about the font information . I was talking about actual information (metrics) about the font character itself , not the file size. For example, height of the character cell, units above the base line units below the baseline, kerning pairs, avera...

Re: Question about Backups

No. Our font manager allows other software to also install fonts if needed. We don't want this exclusive right, as that would do more harm.

If you could provide a little more background information why this is so important to you, then we might better understand your needs.

Re: Question about Backups

No, it won't restore the status of the fonts. It could do more harm, but if you want to make a backup that also allows you to restore the installed fonts, this might work: Select all Active fonts, and provide a tag "Installed". Then when you restore the backup, uninstall all fonts, and then select a...

Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

I've been a MT Pro user for a few years now, and just upgraded to 8. (I run multiple font managers, for a variety of reasons, but mostly because I can't seem to find ONE that gives me everything I want. The others are SuitcaseFusion and Typograf, and one that I think I've actually forgotten, now. I...

Re: Checksum Hash for Download Files

If a hacker is able to get access to our web site to replace our install files, then he is also able to change the Checksum Hash, so that would only provide a false assumption. We have our installers code signed, so you should always see a notice which tells you the installer comes from: Verified Pu...

Re: Problem my font in microsoft word

It all turns out the code page character ranges misses Arabic, and that is important to Microsoft Word. FontCreator automatically disable it as there aren't enough Arabic characters in the font, so you have to manually include Arabic. Go to the Font Properties dialog. Then on the Ranges tab, click t...

Re: Fonts not showing after upgrading from v7 to v8

I'm glad to hear updating the software solved the issue.

I don't know why you get that error on closing the software. I'll contact you to see if we can locate the cause of the issue.

Re: After upgrade from MainType 7 to 8, some fonts have no preview

This issue is most likely due to a Windows update bug that affects some but not all computers. Another user also had this very same issue and was able to solve it by following the steps we provided here: Fonts need to be unloaded/loaded in order to work; Indesign autoload not working Let us know if ...

Re: Filter fonts by Code-Point or Block?

You can also activate the "Show preview with missing characters in red" option, so it is more obvious one or more characters are missing!

To enable this option, select Options from the Tools menu and then click the Font Lists tab.

Re: Failed to start MainType

I'm not sure why this happens, but our software checks to see if the used SQLite library is valid, but that validation fails.

I'll contact you to sort this out.
