MainType Plug-ins allow you to automatically activate missing fonts from other programs without even having to start MainType.
You can install, uninstall and view the status of the plug-ins via the MainType plug-in manager.
Note: The Plugins are only available in the Professional Edition of MainType.
Note: If you want specific fonts to become available in your other software, like Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, etc, then there is no need for a plugin. Just select the font(s) you need and click the Install button at the top of the font view panel or if you wish to install all fonts in a group click the Install button at the top of the Groups panel, and it will activate all listed fonts. So even without plugins, fonts installed with MainType will become available to all your other software.
