Free Edition

MainType runs in Free Edition mode, so some advanced features are disabled. The free edition can only be used by a non-commercial entity for personal, educational and non-commercial use. The one and only exception is during the evaluation period (for 30 days from the day that you install the software) in which the software may also be used by a commercial entity without charge.

Why Register?

We offer two additional (paid) editions in case you want to use the font manager for commercial purposes, require more advanced features, or if you have a large font collection. The commercial editions also include support from our developers and buying a license helps support our efforts to develop innovative products to best serve your needs. Thank you for your support of MainType!
