Question about MainType 3/4 Function?

Post by artbraune » Thu Sep 15, 2011 8:43 pm

I seem to recall MainType 3 used to let me right click on a font and I could select edit the font in FontCreator? I am not seeing that functionality in MainType 4?

Curious if this was an intentional omission?

Thanks!!!

AFAIK it is planned but there just wasn't time to implement it in time for release.

I presume we will see it in MainType 4.1 or so before too long.

Actually this requires some more thought before we implement it.

Questions we need to answer before we can make this work are:
- What to do if the font is no longer on the file system?
- What if you have several copies of the exact same font?
- MainType 4 has no way to automatically add the changed font into it's library...

Any help is appreciated, as the sooner we are convinced we have a good way to make this work, the sooner we'll implement it :D
