Export/sync groups

Post by cpking »

Is it possible to export or sync a created group between computers? For example, I use multiple computers, so creating a group for a project on one computer, and then exporting or syncing that group to another computer avoids manually keeping a list of fonts. This would also apply to workgroup environments for multiple users.

MainType can be used to easily add fonts to several computers. You can use a shared network folder, a Dropbox folder, or Google Drive folder. For each computer add this folder to MainType, and make sure the "Keep in sync" option is checked. Set a synchronization interval so MainType will continue to automatically scan the folder and add all fonts to the MainType font library. You can also check the "Automatically install all fonts..." option. That ensures all team members have the same set of fonts installed. If one person updates fonts in the shared network folder, all team members will get the updates automatically installed.
