Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

That is a fair amount of fonts, and shouldn't be an issue. I have 800 fonts installed, and with MainType closed, the font service "spikes" to 1% once every couple of minutes or so. So I don't understand why it takes so much CPU cycles on your computer. How long does one such spike take on your system?

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

I'm glad to know this update works way better for you. The font service checks if fonts have been installed or uninstalled. It does this every couple of minutes in the background, so this is most likely expected behavior. Alternatively you have synced font folders with a short synchronization interv...

Re: Scanahand Review

Nice, especially how you show a preview of the generated font, with or without kerning.

Re: fontservice.exe goes crazy

That is good to know.

We fixed two major issues. One that could crash MainType, and one that caused the font service to get into an endless loop.

Do let us know if you still encounter problems. Otherwise, enjoy the software :D

Re: r.init not showing at the beginning of a line

I have programmed "r.init" to be a contextual alternate to come after a space. But at the beginning of a line, the "r.init" is not replacing the regular "r". Please see the sample font and the other attachment for reference. How do I fix this? This forum topic might help: How to make a contextual c...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

Will it or will it not be possible to install a copy of Main Type on the Cloud drive so that I have the benefit of using it on a stable database? If I can, how would I go about it? You can't share the font database, and it most likely won't work if stored in the cloud. You can however use a folder ...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

1. I assume I use "config" to find out the database name and simply delete it, and Main Type will then start from scratch, yes? (Many changes were made to the folder structure.) No, you will need to fully uninstall MainType along with the font database, and then reinstall it. 2. With my collection ...

This bug will be fixed with the next upcoming update.

You will then need to recreate the custom views that use the Resource field as match criteria.

Re: How to set usWinAscent and usWinDescent values?

FontCreator is smart enough to fix such incorrect values, that would corrupt a font. This is what we recommend:

Re: lefthand

Unicode has defined over 138,000 characters, so don't expect easy access for all of them with a keyboard.

You can copy and paste my sample text, which includes the specific character:
