Transfer data

Post by shjenk1 » Sat Aug 29, 2020 3:48 pm

How can I transfer all of my data (tags, etc) to a new computer? I'm using version 9.0 if that makes a difference.

MainType allows you to import and export font notes, ratings, and font tags. This allows you to share your notes, ratings, and tags between several computers. Exporting notes, ratings, and tags is considered a partial backup. It is available through MainType’s main menu (Tools -> Import and Export).

You need to use FmsConfig if you want to make a full backup of your font library. You can access it through MainType’s main menu (Tools -> Create and Restore Backups). See also the tutorial about FmsConfig.
