Re: Font Locations, Library Node, etc.

1) FontExpert determines folder path within LIB based on font properties (for example, SE subfolder name stands for Serif, then goes the first letter of family name, then family name, then file name). We consider path within LIB as internal implementation of the Library and database. It is easy to d...

Re: Missing check marks on fonts view

The checkboxes are displayed depending on the option - Tools, Options, Main view, Show check boxes. I have incorrectly said that this feature was cancelled long time ago. Actually we have removed these check boxes in the new version 15 (which should be officially released soon). If you need to "reme...

Re: Missing check marks on fonts view

Fonts view the view with Groups and Library nodes, and the Main view is the view with font previews. There were never check marks in the Fonts view, and we have removed check marks in the Main view long time ago. To keep a temporary set of fonts displayed in the Main view we suggest using Add to Wor...

Re: Batch Renamer

There is no limit and thousand or a few thousands of fonts is normal number for renaming feature. But if renaming is frozen in the middle, it requires special investigation, it is an issue. It is possible that some font is locked by system and it was not possible to rename it, but the feature must f...

Re: Fonts groups using links

I am afraid we do not plan to restore this feature (groups as local folders). In the following version Groups still will be "virtual" folders where fonts are links to corresponding fonts in Library. This approach automatically eliminates duplicates in Library and has another advantages. For synchron...

We did not test the plug-in with Surface Book high resolution screen.
Please confirm the version of the Adobe Illustrator and the plug-in.
Do you have on the screenshot:
1) "Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 Release"

Re: Fonts stop working in user account 2 same pc

If the installed fonts are located within "My Documents" node, that is probably the reason why the fonts are not visible under another user account. If you use two user accounts it is better to put fonts to a folder that is visible under both accounts. For example, C:\MyFonts\... folder should be vi...

Re: New search criteria

500 fonts in a group is NOT a limitation, but a recommendation. With more than 500 fonts in a group you will wait for one or more seconds to display fonts of this group. When you click tags (keywords, categories, ratings, caption) in Search in Library view, this is actually a search in a Library usi...
