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.

Re: Synchronize MainType between PCs

Have you tried to add the Dropbox folder as a keep-in-sync folder? MainType can be used to easily add fonts to several computers.

Re: Where is "Find or Go to Character"?

MainType 8 includes a Goto codepoint feature, available when you right-click within the character grid.

You then need to provide the Unicode code point value.

Your request is a little different, but sounds like a nice enhancement, so we've added it to our to-do list.

Re: Feature request: Font activation for Quark Xpress 2017

I'm curious if you still think a plugin is needed, or if the font activation features in MainType (e.g. install and load fonts) is sufficient?

Re: Overlapping pair adjustments -- problem or not?

Overlapping characters shouldn't be an issue. It used to be an issue if a character contained overlapping contours, but even that no longer seems to be an issue.

To be sure do test your fonts in several popular word processing applications, web browsers, etc.
