Re: Registration code for trial version?

You get a license after you've paid for it.

You can try the software without a license, so you can decide if it is worth your money.

Re: Hangs on Processing

If it is still showing progress, then it is still working. It might be slow as it is both indexing your fonts, and also trying to update the user interface, showing the newly found fonts. Usually it goes faster if you select a group that contains only a couple of fonts. If you have selected the Libr...

Re: Hangs on Processing

Close the Font Folders dialog and then add a group in the Groups panel.

Re: Hangs on Processing

To further look into this, I ask you to force a crash within the font service, which will generate a stack trace of the current state of the software. To let the font service crash, do add a new group with this specific name: Crash2019 After you've done it, the group won't be added, and the font ser...

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

We could further look into this, but then we should consider a remote desktop session. For example with Chrome Remote Desktop if you don't mind me taking a look at your computer.

Re: High-Logic Font Management Service revs too much

Erwin, thanks for providing this method of generating error reports. I sent you the .dat file via PM. Thank you for providing the report. I can see it is indeed busy with "ResolveLoadedFonts". I don't know why it takes that much resources on your side. I note that, while adding the Crash2019 group ...

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...

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...
