Re: Restore from minimized to screen

MainType takes about 10 seconds to start up here, which isn’t bad given that there are more than ten thousand fonts in my library, but I would appreciate an option to reduce the occurrence of accidental shutdown. Saving a few tens of megabytes of RAM isn’t a major priority for me.

Re: Restore from minimized to screen

In conjunction, I would like the option to have the close box (upper right x in the title bar) simply minimize instead of close MT. So if in the Options I have MT set to minimize to the system tray it would also work with using the close button. Of course, using File | Exit would still close MT alt...

Re: Linotype vs FontShop

The ITC Officina Complete Family Pack (as sold by Linotype) contains 20 fonts, not 10.

I see that the page now even includes direct links to the old installers so I don't have to use the form.
Yes, that’s why I said the email “will also” include the links. ;)

Re: A vague complaint - upgrades, old installers, etc.

The older versions seems to be hidden in a secret place or something. The secret place is the page where you go to retrieve lost registration codes ( Support > Registration Codes ). If you submit the form, the email that you receive in response to your request will also include the relevant link/s.

Oh, wow -- interesting. Y'know, all this time I've been using FC, I never even noticed that offset thing there (nor the AW thing either -- whatever that is).
AW = Advance Width. ;)

Re: Disappearance of small letter i diacritics when clicking composite icon

I'd be interested to know if there are any other languages that use it. Bookmark the site that I referenced. The Letter Database . It is a useful resources for such questions.

Some languages (e.g. Turkish) also use the dotless ı as an alphabetic character on its own.
I've always regarded the presence of ı in a piece of text as a clear sign that the language in question is Turkish! I'd be interested to know if there are any other languages that use it.

I added what I thought were small capitals, only to find out later that I had added petite capitals, and I still don't know what the difference is
As I understand it, petite capitals should be optically aligned with the x-height but small capitals are noticeably taller.

We consider both SVG fonts and EOT format obsolete.
The current OpenType specification allows for OpenType fonts to contain an SVG table.

Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

If you have ever used Typograf (the paid version--I have no idea if the free version also has it), the properties dialog contains a TON of information about the font itself. See screenshot for an example, from ACaslonReg. They really ought to proofread their dialogs and fix silly typos like “WidhtC...
