Re: Hello, font groups won't uninstall

It must be a sync fobt folder.

It is best to upgrade to the latest version, but even with your version it can be deleted through font folders.

Re: Caladea Regular Displays as Italic

We've been able to reproduce the issue, and will further investigate it. It looks like Word doesn't recognize Caladea Bolt Italic, because it has an incorrect font subfamily name (Italic instead of the expected Bold Italic). Uninstalling all but Regular solves the issue, so the font names are incorr...

Re: What does "Outline Issues" mean?

If outlines or side bearings are not as expected, then such warning may appear.

The fist glyph might seem just fine, but I wonder if your second glyph (Hebrew letter yod with hiriq) has correct side bearings. Maybe someone with more insights in Hebrew can shed some light on this?

Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

I was hoping for a solution so that any possible fraction in the form of x/x could be converted to the proper fraction. Our daughter of 9 is at this moment 4th grade of the primary school, so fractions are not too big. I will ask her about the biggest fraction she needs. The fractions are used for ...

Re: How to convert 3/4 to proper fractions?

I'm glad we were able to get you started in the right direction. I intend to draw the fractions I need with Affinity Designer. I already found in the user manual that I have to draw within a bounding box of 300 x 300 pixels for good results. Our small one also use different numeric characters, so I ...

Re: Font Groups data location

It is better to make backups on a regular basis, and restore your latest backup through FmsConfig. You can access it through MainType's main menu -> Tools -> Create and Restore Backups. This is further explained in the manual. If you don't have such backup, then you might be able to manually restore...

We've not experienced the slow behavior you describe.

Do send us the project file along with some instruction so we can try to reproduce the issue.

Re: How do I Create Alternate Fonts?

Backtrack is the sequence of glyphs before the actual contextual input, and lookahead is what comes after it. Say you only want to replace "f" "i" with a "fi" ligature if it precedes with and "i" and "c" "e" after it, then it would trigger the substitution tables if you type: magnificent but it woul...
