Re: Allow drag and drop from MainType to FontCreator

A context menu item to Open Fonts in FontCreator would be better. That would also work if FontCreator was currently closed, minimised, or hidden behind the MainType window.

Re: Hello, font groups won't uninstall

Do you see the option to delete the group on the context menu?

Re: Open Type features in Libre Office

I see the same issue. The regular font displays correctly in other application.

This looks like a bug in MainType.

Re: Open Type features in Libre Office

MainType 8 now supports the display of OpenType features in the Font Information Panel. This allows you to easily examine multiple fonts without opening them in FontCreator.

Re: What does "Outline Issues" mean?

In Tools, Options, Validation, enable Local Detection.

You will then see that the first glyph has off-curve extreme co-ordinates.

The second glyph with outline issues is a composte. Jump to the glyph members and you will see the same error.

Re: Custom layouts should save sort column or grouping

In earlier versions, even the column status was not saved with the layout.

That feature request has since been implemented. Whatever does not come free with Windows controls has to be added.

Re: Custom layouts should save sort column or grouping

Yes, almost certainly "By Design," so I moved it to the Requests and Enhancements forum.

Re: need to restart application everytime

I have never seen newly installed fonts in PagePlus (or any other ‘Plus’ application) until the next time I launch it. Which version of MainType are you using? Not that it should matter. Auto-update of the font list has worked for many years. Aachan Bold Not Installed.png Aachan Bold Added.png Aach...

Re: need to restart application everytime

If it's working with Word, but not with other apps, I doubt if reinstalling MainType will fix anything.

It may be due to a recent Windows update.

Re: need to restart application everytime

No such problem here. Fonts appear/disappear from my application's font menu when I instal/uninstall. Tested with Serif PagePlus X9 on Windows 10 latest update.

Re: Thick strokes in different sizes

The fix is to enable Hinting in the font export settings dialogue. This requires the use of Truetype outlines, as CCF Postscript outlines do not support hinting. Font Export Settings.png The hinting added by FontCreator's ttfautohint plugin, may not be as good as the hinting in Microsoft's fonts. To...
