Frequently Asked Questions

Is MainType available for a Mac?

No, our font manager runs on Windows only.

I can't see my vector, raster and multiple master fonts, how can I enable them?
We've decided to no longer support them, as these old font formats are no longer used by the majority of desktop software.
