Installing different FontTypes don’t work - MainType 9

Post by Susanne B » Wed Apr 22, 2020 9:40 am

Hi,
we are testing MainType 9. Our graphic desginer tried to load and install one font with different font types. So she installed univers PostScript, than could not install univers open type at the same time. So is it correct, that we can not install one font as PostScript and at the same time as open type? In MainType 5 it was no Problem. Thank you.

It depends on the internal font naming, as that is also how Windows allows you to use fonts. You just can't have duplicates installed. This is just how it works in Windows, and probably also in other operating systems.
