Rearrange Order of Forums

Currently the order is: FontCreator Scanahand MainType On the products droplist the order is FontCreator, MainType, Scanahand. Since MainType is much more popular than Scanahand, and because it is before it in alphabetical order, it should be above Scanahand on the list of forums. This would make fo...

Re: How can a font collector identify supported OpenType features?

This has been implemented in MainType 8.0.

There is a column in views to show whether or not a font contains any OpenType features. The information panel can be used to compare OpenType features in different fonts.

Re: Feature Request: scrolling works even when panel is not in focus

This is implemented in MainType 8.0.

Scrolling now works wherever the mouse cursor is hovered, without giving focus to that panel.

MainType 8.0 now has predefined views for fonts that have been Used Recently (within the last week) or Used Today.

"Used" means that they have been installed, uninstalled, loaded, or unloaded.

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

I'm not asking for anything different from what was in version 2.1 of Maintype. No, but you're asking from something different to search by codepoint, which is what Erwin said. Just because something existed in an earlier version does not mean that it's easy to just re-enable. The code is completel...

Re: Creating a single stroke ttf from ai files

Previous topics on CNC Engravers fonts seem to indicate that it's not possible or at least impractical using the TrueType format.

I have not heard of any change in recent versions, though this topic has come up several times over the years.

Re: Issue with Composites

That is because a number of code points in the PUA are used by the Complete Composites feature. Set the Glyph Overview to use Decimal code-points (Ctrl+J) If you have used any of these code-points (at the start of the PUA) for your bows, they will be used to compose accents for Uppercase accented co...

Hi, can anyone tell me how to use these kind of color font? Thank you very much!
Support for Colour Fonts is still very limited. Firefox and Vivaldi (Chrome) support them.

You can see A Test Page for my colour font, Odana. If your browser supports colour, the heading will be in colour.
