Font Base?
« on: July 01, 2020, 01:19:24 PM »
Has anyone given this one a try? It looks like a nice free font management tool.

I haven't played around with it too much but there were some fonts I couldn't add from our external HDDs not sure if that was something wrong with their encoding or what not, a lot of our fonts give errors if dropped into Font Book so not sure if that could have been it. Helvetica CE Narrow was the font family we were having issues getting dropped into Font Base.

Here's a link if you guys want to check it out.

I tested it some time ago and I don't remember exactly why but there was some reason why we didn't start using it here. Maybe they fixed what I didn't like about it?

I found out the issue I'm having with dropping some fonts in to Font Base, is that those fonts had Zero KB for size. Derp. :facepalm:

I'm noticing about the Type 1 issue. Most of ours are Type 1. I'm probably going to just go back to copying to the fonts folder.

Weird... my earlier post I know I did, and that you're responding to isn't showing up...

That post was made right about the time my hosting provider moved all of my stuff to a new server. So it is still there. On a server that no one can see anymore.
