Works perfect, thanks
Please look closely at the results. They are far from being perfect.

Re: Is it possible to transform the whole font in width?

The glyph transform wizard can be used to transform all selected glyphs at once, but you will probably have to edit each glyph afterwards to adjust them afterwards, especially if the font has serifs. Glyphs like zero, O, C, Q and so forth will need more work to keep the stem width even. Condense Sel...

Re: Long time to process fonts

No such problem here.

Re: Registration code for trial version?

Have you installed FontCreator earlier, more than 30 days ago? The trial version expires after 30 days if I remember rightly. FontCreator runs on Windows 10, 8, 7, and Vista. During the free 30-day trial period, it runs in professional edition mode, so all features are enabled, but generated fonts w...

Re: Cannot delete font folders.

Just delete the fonts and all record of them. If that fails, you could simply uninstall MainType, removing its databases, and reinstall.

Re: How to export all characters in a font as a single SVG file?

It is not possible. You might be able to do this in Inkscape.

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

Mike, I think the idea is to use r.init after a newline code as well as after a space.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

The Cap Height for the font is currently 1434 funits. Figure 3 Baseline = +1 funit, height of glyph = 1433 funits (See the size tab of the Transform Toolbar). Note that your horizontal guide is at 1432 funits, not 1434. Double-click the ruler to remove duplicate guides and to move guides to a precis...

Uninstalling is done in the usual way from Windows Control Panel, Apps. You can opt to delete the databases or leave them IIRC.

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

That's better, but still a lot to do. Fix baseline/cap height alignment, and overshoots as recommended above Fix curve smoothing for all serifs (example below). I have fixed the figure 5 to have smoother serifs and precisely horizontal/vertical strokes. Fix glyph metrics (I ran the attached file thr...

Re: type slash and some numbers disappear

None of the changes that I recommended above have been made. Only one thing to add is that rounded serifs need to overshoot the baseline and caps height by a small amount to make the bottoms and tops of glyphs align visually. So, for example, the bases of the 1 and 2 will sit on the baseline, but th...

Re: Major Re-config + Cloud use

I notice you list 650K files as a rough max for MT9. The Comparison Chart says that the number of fonts supported by the Professional Edition is unlimited. For the Standard Edition it is limited to 10,000 fonts. MainType is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version is faster ...
