I'm using this App (Maintype 6) since a half year. Now I have a library of more than 1,000 fonts.
After combining all my font sources to one folder there are a lot of duplicates.
Why MT6 cannot find and delete duplicates ? I have to use a third party tool to find all duplicates and remove them. In my opinion is this a "must have" for a $40 software !!!
First of all MainType is a font manager, not a file manager. If we did offer such feature, some/most people would like to decide which one of the duplicates they wish to keep, etc. Making it more complex for its needs.
Since MainType holds a copy of each unique font resource file, you can just delete all copies on file. If you need them again, just select them in MainType, right-click and select Export...
other missing features are :
- Fonts moveable to own groups instead of add linked group
You can physically move or copy font resource files to "Keep in sync" font folders.

What do you mean with this?

We will add this request to our to-do list.

Right now this is how most software let you choose fonts, so we don't want to change the way we represent font families.
