Re: MainType Pro 5.1 not working after upgrading to MS Win 10

After posting I noticed that the latest version of Main Type is 6.0 so I just upgraded to the Pro version and DL and installed it. Seem to have fixed the problem of not working on MS Windows 10. Just waiting for my Key Code to keep it working.

Re: Font views different when..

The Characters of the font are vector files not bitmaps that I have been copying to the clipboard from CorelDraw 6 to import into FontCreator, but the sharp corners and some of the straight lines have been transformed into curve lines is this normal?

Re: Manual Kerning

Been using this program for a short time what do you mean by " negative side -bearing, adjust the side -bearings', anything to get the font to auto kern better would be a great help.

Re: Manual Kerning

Just like in your above example of the jpeg, I know that "AFA would kern different left and right of the center letter, but instead of just being able to kern a pair of letters would it be possible to program it so that you could kern 3 letters at a time and apply / save the kerning like you ca...

Re: Manual Kerning

Yes, I know about the comparison tool bar, love it, but wish this feature could be put into manual kerning, it would allow much faster kerning if you could do both the left and right kerning at the same time. VersaCad had this feature available back in 1989, made it a breeze to quick kern a font man...
