Character Map

Post by amax » Fri May 24, 2019 3:50 am

I received a new computer for Mother's Day and finally got all my fonts installed. When I installed MainType, the character map isn't working on my installed fonts only the computer fonts. Anything I can do that I haven't already done: uninstall & reinstalled, restarted computer.

How to Take Screenshots in Windows (Note the file size and clarity of my screenshot compared to your camera image, which was originally 2.1 Mbytes)

Your screenshot does not show how many fonts are installed, but you are running the free version, which is limited to 2,500 fonts. I wonder if that might be the reason?

How many fonts are in your font library?

Try running the Registry Fixer from the Tools menu.
