Re: Please use windows registry for saving settings.

The new docking system is not compatible with the previous floating panels. So when you come from a previous release of FontCreator, your previous layout is not migrated. We intend to add a way to manage your layouts in a future update. It is likely those layouts are stored in the registry, but if w...

As you can see, none of the points are on the grid.
Snap to grid will only snap while moving points. There is not way to just click a "Round to Grid" button, which I can image could be useful.

Re: I Can't Make Snap To Grid Work

FontCreator 13 will only snap points when you move them with the mouse. The upcoming version 14 will have many improvements.

Re: Font Printing Problem

Maybe one of the fonts is corrupt, but I still think it is a driver issue, as it should not produce such error.

You might be able to track it down to a single font, by divide and conquer the list.

Re: unable to install

I can't uninstall as it won't install - the folders you mention aren't present as I can't even get that far. The error occurs as soon as I click on exe file (including run as administrator). The installation process doesn't begin and fail, it doesn't even start. Tried installing with all AV/cleaner...

Re: unable to install

It should work just fine, unless you have manually deleted part of the software, or if you are using some registry cleaner or other smart software that tries to remove software. In your case, either reinstall, and then uninstall the software, or manually delete these folders: C:\Program Files\High-L...

Re: FM v11.0.0.1268 (x64) - Uninstall

No solution yet, but you can reset your layout:

Do start MainType, and as soon as you see it is starting, hold down the Ctrl key until a message pops up.

Click yes, and the error should be gone. No need to repeat this, as from now on the layout settings will be valid again. Let us know your results.

Re: none similar web font smoothing/hinting

Calibri has been manually hinted by experts. It took them many months to get it that good. You might want to take a look at Microsoft Visual TrueType (VTT) in case you want to improve the way your fonts look on screen:

whew! I just had a big restore after disk errors that I FINALLY got fixed and thought there were more issues :D

I appreciate the reply
So far you are the only one with this specific issue, so maybe it has to do with your system. I will keep you informed.

Re: FM v11.0.0.1268 (x64) - Uninstall

I am very sorry about the inconvenience, but it is an issue with a third party component. and reinstalling won't fix it.

I will contact the vendor to see if they can provide a fix.
