Re: Add paste feature to Glyph Transformer

Actually the formula is meant to make composite glyphs, so it seems that is not what you are looking for. We could add a transform feature that adds all contours from one glyph to all selected glyphs. This obviously will only work for simple glyphs. We might come up with better solutions if you prov...

Re: How do I find all the subtables that contain a given glyph?

Click the Code Editor button at the bottom of the OpenType Designer window. Then use the Search feature to look for the glyph name. Press the F3 key to look for subsequent finds.

Export Font File

We are aware that people use the export feature numerous times. If in the mean time a font file is in use by another process, the font export will fail as it can't overwrite a locked file. When you save a file from a web browser, it will append (1) to the file name to overcome this problem. E.g. Gar...

Re: Add paste feature to Glyph Transformer

Right now it is not possible, but you can add glyphs with formulas, even within the glyph transformer:

agrave=a+gravecomb
adotbelow=a+dotbelowcomb

Would that be of use?

Re: Panose between Systems

Maybe the .DOC file format store the PANOSE signature of each font in the document, along with the name of the font? That is correct. This is further explained in the Word Binary File Format Specification: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/openspecs/office_file_formats/ms-doc/ccd7b486-7881-484c-a137...

Re: How do we remove "FontCreator" from the auto-generated version string?

Updating it manually is way better than going back to an outdated version of our font editor. The version information allows the font designer to see what version of FontCreator was used to produce the font. This is helpful in case one wonders if a specific bug affected a font. We have a changelog t...

Re: Export/sync groups

MainType can be used to easily add fonts to several computers. You can use a shared network folder, a Dropbox folder, or Google Drive folder. For each computer add this folder to MainType, and make sure the "Keep in sync" option is checked. Set a synchronization interval so MainType will continue to...

Re: Is it possible to directly replace a system font with a revised font?

A system font is most likely locked by Windows and therefor can't be easily replaced. There is obviously a reason why it isn't easy, as it can really mess up your system. I haven't tried it myself, but it seems people have managed to do it: How to change the default system font on Windows 10 Good lu...

Re: Delete Folder From Group

If those are sync folders and are showing as root folders, then you need to remove them through the Font Folders dialog. Select Library from the main menu, and then click Font Folders.
