Structure and handling

Post by Glyphman » Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:07 pm

Hi again, just want some advice if I'm on the wrong direction...? I saw the other post about workflow... was quite informative. I wonder if this is a good way to startup the structure and have the foundation of handling fonts organized like this.
As you can see on the screenshot I have 3 main font folders; OTF TTF fonts which contains markup fonts for webdesign, OTF CFF quallity graphic fonts, TT fonts mostly symbols, dingbats, figures, ornaments, some display fonts etc.
The "Groups" below are projects and customers. I drag fonts from the font folders into this groups. My original Font folders are placed directly onto C disk. If I want to update/change a font in some of the Font folders, can I just erase it from the original folder past the new and refresh the font folders in MainType? Is that the correct way to work with it?

Ensure you have unchecked "Show groups recursively".

Then while working with Sync folders, you can copy, paste, and delete fonts through MainType.
