Press Release MainType 6

Time To Tag Your Fonts With MainType

De Bilt, Utrecht, The Netherlands -- November 6, 2014 -- High-Logic B.V., the leader in providing font editing and font management software, today released a major new version of its font manager MainType. This version brings font folder synchronization, font tagging, an improved font registry fixer, and numerous enhancements that help you control your fonts.

Previous versions of MainType already came with several ways to group and categorize font collections, but the new font tagging functionality adds another dimension to managing fonts.

“MainType allows you to provide meaningful tags to your fonts, so you can easily find and use the right fonts for every occasion,” says Erwin Denissen, CEO of High-Logic.

With font folder synchronization it is a breeze to use shared fonts on a network drive, so a team can work with exactly the same group of fonts as part of their font collection. Of course it's also possible to synchronize local font folders.

Several existing features have been improved. The backup and restore features are accessible through the Tools menu. Numerous new toolbar icons have been added, and several dialogs have been redesigned.

Platform and Price

MainType 6 runs under Windows and costs $39.00 for the standard edition. The professional edition costs $79.00. Existing customers can upgrade from $29.00. For more information, or to download the trial version, visit the product page
