Adobe Type 1 font rename

Postby leeAberfa » Mon Apr 23, 2018 8:06 pm


I'm about to purchase this tool, since it has so many features I am looking for! (You guys have hidden this tool very well on the internet, because only after trying 10(!) other software tools, I stumbled upon Fontexpertb y accident :lol: luckely for me!

But some issues arose, and my questions are:

1) How can I rename Adobe Type 1 fonts (and copy to another dir, to keep the originals save)? They do get renamed, but the *.AFM and *.INF don't get renamed and/or copied, so this tool is useless to me.

2) the export to HTML is cool! but how can I do an auto-font-size? I want the fontsize to autoadjust to the given width/height, so that the maximum amount of space (e.g. width 400 pixels) is filled completely. For smaller fonts, this allows me to see them at an bigger font-size automatically.
I now have to resample all the autosized images to an fixed width in an external program (thus altering the quality) to get the WHOLE exported sample text in the box. This does not look good...

3) HOW do I remove the Character Table from Dockbar view??

4) By the way: when I start FontExpert fresh and goto View -> Groups, The program quitss on me...

5) Font faces is THE way! This is why I would purchase FE! But is also possible to display the Font face name AND a face sample text (at the same time)?

for instance: My font face text sample 3 looks like this:

%FULLNAME - AaBbCcDdEeFf blablalbla

so, in Font Faces view is see this in My face sample 3(e.g.)

Arial Black - AaBbCcDdEeFf blablalbla

I know, a lot of questions!

Thanks for reading/answering!
