Maintype stopped working

Post by Gethin » Thu Nov 02, 2017 9:49 am

wont install, load or uninstall fonts. Also wont delete. I have tried reinstalling, does not work. Registry fixer has no issues.

On closing it says "it is reccommended you wait for the current font operation to complete"

Have you tried rebooting your PC?

It appears to come down to one dodgy font family. I spent an hour clearing it off my computer. and removing it from maintype. However I want to remove it from the database entirely so I have the chance of re-installing it. When I delete it it goes into ignored fonts, but then I cant re-install it.

If I unignore it: I have my fonts synced to my harddrive, and although I've physically deleted the files, it still appears in maintype.

I also created a custom view to show unavailable typeface, and found it in there, but bizarrely it still let me load one of them!? I think there is a particular font of the set that is bodgy.
