Re: WOFF 2.0 support

When working on a full set of fonts I use the Export All option, then delete the WOFF versions if I don't need them. For those fonts that don't need a WOFF version it would be better to disable WOFF export in the Export Settings. I also think None should be the default for new projects as probably ...

Re: WOFF 2.0 support

I'm also thinking about some more improvements with WOFF font files. E.g. only provide one platform for mapping data and naming fields, and always exclude glyph names and also no longer include the legacy kern table. And as Bhikkhu Pesala suggested also leave out the Open Contours option. Those sou...

Re: Printing problems with altered font (looks ok on scren)

I don’t think we can solve the mystery unless you’re able to share the font.

Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

BTW, thanks for introducing me to Typography Insight. Although it’s touted as a learning tool, that custom waterfall feature on its own looks likely to be worth the asking price (even for the slightly more expensive iPad version). I find it quite handy. Yes, it is. If memory serves, it was quite ch...

Re: Printing problems with altered font (looks ok on scren)

Was PagePlus already running when you installed the new version of the font? Did you reboot your PC before you installed it?

we will drop support for including XML Metadata to WOFF
Is there a serious downside to retaining support for this? :?

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

It's not the purposeful closure I care about, it's the accidental closure. Same here. With a font editor or a DTP application you’ll be prompted to save changes if you’re in the middle of doing something when you click on the ‘Close’ X, but MainType isn’t like that, so it’s very easy to close it ac...

Re: IBM Flex Fonts Fail to Load

Downloading with MS Edge gives me a 108 KB File which opens without error in FontCreator 11.5.0.2422. This is misleading. You must have opened each link and clicked on the download button. Using Edge, Save target as.. saves an HTML file. Apologies if my description was confusingly brief! When I sai...

Re: IBM Flex Fonts Fail to Load

The problem is with my browser. The latest Vivaldi Snapshot is not getting the whole file for some reason. Downloading with Opera 12.18 works fine. I get the same error when trying to open IBMPlexSerif-Bold.otf downloaded with Vivaldi 1.14.1077.55 (the newest stable channel version). The Vivaldi do...

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

MainType takes about 10 seconds to start up here, which isn’t bad given that there are more than ten thousand fonts in my library, but I would appreciate an option to reduce the occurrence of accidental shutdown. Saving a few tens of megabytes of RAM isn’t a major priority for me.

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

In conjunction, I would like the option to have the close box (upper right x in the title bar) simply minimize instead of close MT. So if in the Options I have MT set to minimize to the system tray it would also work with using the close button. Of course, using File | Exit would still close MT alt...

I see that the page now even includes direct links to the old installers so I don't have to use the form.
Yes, that’s why I said the email “will also” include the links. ;)

Re: A vague complaint - upgrades, old installers, etc.

The older versions seems to be hidden in a secret place or something. The secret place is the page where you go to retrieve lost registration codes ( Support > Registration Codes ). If you submit the form, the email that you receive in response to your request will also include the relevant link/s.
