Re: SVG Import Issue

Look at the help file, it seems that the default is 128 pixels per em, and position at the origin 0,0. There is no way to reset to the defaults, short of reinstalling FontCreator. It is unlikely that the default settings are going to suit anyone, let alone everyone. How the outlines look after impor...

Re: Retrieve Custom View based on Tags

The right-most icon on the Tag Search panel allows me to "save" the tag configuration, however there does not seem to be a way to RETRIEVE those tags, even though the name I chose to save it with does appear in the dialog box. In MainType 11, the right-most icon allows me to save a Custom...

Re: Unremovable fonts?

Looks like some temporary fonts installed by an Adobe application. Try closing all other apps, or reboot, and they may disappear from MainType.

Re: Symbol font style

Re: Symbol font style

My version of MainType (MainType 11.0.0.1268 [May 21, 2021]) shows that Symbol font as Regular. I have only a couple of very old WordPerfect IconSymbols fonts that show up as Normal.

Re: Invalid Characters

The glyph names do not match the glyphs.
