moving font library to dropbox

I'd like to keep my fonts in sync across my laptop. Thought I'd just move the font library to a dropbox folder.
1). What's the best method?
2). Is there any downside to doing this?
3). Does maintype licenxe allow me to install it on my laptop too?

thanks! :)

Re: Maintype stopped working

It appears to come down to one dodgy font family. I spent an hour clearing it off my computer. and removing it from maintype. However I want to remove it from the database entirely so I have the chance of re-installing it. When I delete it it goes into ignored fonts, but then I cant re-install it. I...

Maintype stopped working

wont install, load or uninstall fonts. Also wont delete. I have tried reinstalling, does not work. Registry fixer has no issues.

On closing it says "it is reccommended you wait for the current font operation to complete"

New view please: recently activated/installed

Maybe this is because I'm getting old and senile but I'm forever activating fonts and then promptly forgetting which ones I've activated or installed. Please could we have a view for recently installed or activated fonts, or a history panel, or a column. (yes I know I could create a group, but often...

Re: fonts not available in premiere

Hi There, Yeah I'm not going to start moving fonts into adobes font folder - and that requires a restart anyway as far as I know. The whole point of a type manager is to avoid this sort of faff! :) A free trial of premiere is available. I'll try contacting adobe I'm sure they'll hop to and fix this ...

fonts not available in premiere

version 5.1: I used to be able to install the font as opposed to loading it in order to force premiere to see a font without restarting the software. In windows 10 this does not appear to work. I have to restart the software (which can take an age with a big project). I've just spent a day testing o...

Re: plugins with trial

I just bought MT, for its auto activation - to find that the plugins cant be installed for indesign CC. Any idea when this might be available?

plugins with trial

I Want to try the auto activation plugins before I buy maintype (because I already have font agent pro and I'm trialling another font manager, but I would buy maintype if the plugins work OK - unlike the extensis ones for instance)
is there a way to get them?
