Find, Preview, Organize, Install, and Print Your Fonts

De Bilt, Utrecht May 2, 2007 -- High-Logic has released MainType 2.1, a powerful but easy to use Windows Font Manager that takes the frustration out of managing your fonts. Using drag and drop, MainType makes it simple to find, preview, organize, install, and print your fonts.

Novice computer users will appreciate how easy it is to view fonts, install them, and organize their font collections. Power users, including typographers and professional designers, will appreciate the features that aren't available in other font software: MainType provides immediate system-wide font synchronization, with no need to refresh font lists or reboot the computer after installing fonts. MainType supports all seventeen planes defined in the Unicode character database, and can display all characters that are included in a font. MainType supports TrueType Font Collections, in which two or more TrueType fonts are combined into a single .ttc font file.

It's easy to sort your fonts into groups, to make them faster to find and install. You can preview and browse fonts on any drive, before installing them. The Font Export Wizard generates an HTML-based overview of any of your fonts. MainType works with TrueType, OpenType, TrueType Collections, Postscript Type 1, vector, and raster fonts. You can use MainType to locate a particular character in any font, and paste it into another Windows application as formatted text or as a bitmap image.

New features in version 2.1 include full Vista support, the ability to type preview text into the Font drop-down list, a character zoom popup window, more predefined font variables, and cosmetic improvements to the interface.

Whether you're a business person who needs to find the best fonts for your flyers and brochures, a home user who wants to take control of the hundreds of fonts on your system, or a graphic designer or typographer who needs the power of an advanced font management system, MainType has the tools that you need.
