Re: MainType 10.0 Call to OS function failed

I have not seen the message.

Your Windows OS version is a bit out of date, but I doubt if that is the cause. Anyway, you could try updating Windows and see if the error happens again.

Re: Alternative character in Colour

Most browsers now support color font technology. The Web Font test in FontCreator will open a test page in your default browser.

Not all applications support color fonts, but Adobe Illustrator should. I do not have it to test.

Try with my free Odana multi-coloured font.

Try Tools, Glyph Names, Generate and see if that helps.

Thank you for letting us know. This message no longer appears in more recent versions, but if needed we will make sure we use the correct wording.
The current usage is fine, and easy to understand.

Re: 'Not Undoable' translation

I don't see this going anywhere. Glyph transformations are now undoable in later versions.

I know that there's newer versions of the software, but I'm comfortable with this... You know "if something works for you, don't change it."
In any case, you should upgrade to the latest version of MainType 9.0 to get the latest bug fixes.

Re: Oops database version error while opening v9.0

MainType 9 was updated several times since the version that you installed:

You need the installer for 9.0.0.1207.

Re: Auto expanding fonts with extra characters

I moved your topics to the correct forum. They are not feature requests.

Also look at the topics on Glyph Transformer (feature not available in the Home Edition) • Insert CharactersInsert Glyphs.

Re: Cannot Sort Fonts

Disable Toggle Family Grouping. When fonts are grouped by family, the fonts are sorted only within each family. Expand a family group tree to see the effects of sorting.

Re: How to import the glyph sets from Illustrator

You will need to adjust the spacing between glyphs in FontCreator. The scaling (pixels per em) and initial position (Origin X, and Origin Y) of the imported contours can be set in Options, Exchange, but that can only set the lower left corner of the imported glyphs. Glyphs with descenders like g, j,...

I already used this setting, but the result is still the same..
Then change the pixels per em value.

Re: copied object is too big

Change the Exchange values for Vector based Images in Options from the Tools menu.

It looks like the help file screenshot needs updating.
