MainType 4.5 is here!

Post by Erwin Denissen » Thu May 31, 2012 3:08 pm

We have just released MainType 4.5!

After we released MainType 4 last year, we've been working very hard to add several features that were missing, but more or less essential for a lot of our existing customers. We are pleased to tell you we've finally added network support and plugins.
  • Network support
    Font auto-activation plug-ins for Adobe InDesign (CS5-CS6)
    Print full character repertoire
    Show fonts with missing characters in red
Currently the plug-ins are available for Adobe InDesign CS5, CS5.5, and CS6. Our development team is designing plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. These will become available soon, at no cost to our MainType 4 customers.

Existing users of MainType 4 can update it for free through the update check (in MainType select Help from the main menu, and then click Check for Updates), or download and install (no need to uninstall he existing install of MainType).

Excellent! The update was completely painless.
  1. Launched MainType
  2. Update auto-detected
  3. Downloaded update
  4. MainType restarted and applied update
  5. Font Libraries were updated
My MainType Review was also updated painlessly.

Any comments on my review are welcome in the relevant thread (not here please).
