It should provide equal results. We are about the release an update which contains improvements to Optical Metrics. I'll send you a link to it so you can give it a try.

Anyone find a solution?
I can't use the program and work normally.
We're running the same creator update and MainType runs just fine.

If this is indeed a Microsoft issue, then we can't do much about it. Nevertheless I'll contact you to see what we can do to help.

Re: Font exports with glyphs misassigned

Thanks for the good suggestions. I should have made clear that, no, the file converted from Symbol worked fine. And I appear to be using the latest FC version, Erwin. On a hunch, I went back to the archive and copied in the original file. When I ran it through FC I got the right letters in the MT P...

Re: Main Type Processing Font Information Failure

Ok, so I restarted the fontservice, and it got rid of the initial loading error, but I still have some fonts that are coming up marked red in my active fonts. I tried uninstalling them, reloading them, and deleting them from Main Type, but they still show up with a red dot in the active list. Also,...

Re: Duplication of Anchors

Earlier today I released a private build with a fix for this.

If it turns out to work correctly, expect an official release next week.

Re: inDesign will not package load only fonts

If they don't accept loaded fonts, then it might be wise to always install fonts.

If that is an issue with your workflow, then better contact Adobe as it is an issue on their end.

Re: Duplication of Anchors

It is very reproducible, to cause the problem you copy a glyph which has anchors then paste it into another glyph which has anchors of the same name. The first anchor doesn't get duplicated, all the others are duplicated. I've found a bug which will be fixed with the next upcoming release. Having m...

Re: Font exports with glyphs misassigned

In the Preview Text in Main Type, "American" came out as oyq[732]uomz (both cases of the file have lowercased glyphs). In the character table everything looks fine. I remember such issues could happen with some awkward fonts, but we released a fix for that. Are you using the latest version of FontC...

Re: Wrong font on incoming mail

It could also be an issue with font substitutes, but without knowing the exact font style it is hard to tell. So I suggest you either look into the original mail source, or copy and paste the message into Word, so you can then see which font is intended to be used. The top screen capture is from som...

Re: Opening the projects in the same order

We've looked into this before, but the current user interface elements don't support this. We've looked for alternatives, but couldn't find a better replacement.

Re: Code tutorials ?

We mostly have snippets spread around this forum.

For most things it is easiest to visually add the OpenType layout features, and then later study the script code.

If you have a specific request do let us know.
