  1. DXF import/export is very important in my work.
  2. Oh yeah, that works!
  3. I was unable to reproduce that fix using the layer transparency settings. Is there another way to do it?
  4. Thanks for the advice, everyone. Maybe with a font manager, I can at least reduce the number of fonts when I'm not dealing with font specimens. @Mark Ingram When you're implementing a font cache, please make it fairly easy for users to manually clear out the font cache. Here's a situation that often happens with me: I create a large font family but there's a metadata error in one of the members of the family. If could be a Panose ID number that was wrong, a missing bold or italic flag. This can cause the font menu to get messed up. When the font is repaired and updated, I need a way to force the application to rebuild the entire cache. With Adobe apps, I have to go deep into system folders to manually delete the cache file. Not such a big deal but it's a problem when I need to tell customers how to find their cache file which can be a different location for each version and platform. So try not to bury the cache too deep if possible and give it an obvious name.
  5. When setting a joining script font or other fonts with overlaps in Designer, each glyph overlaps as if it were a separate layer. The text should appear as a unified layer.
  6. I have a reasonably powerful Windows 10 PC (64-bit) and it takes about 2.5 minutes to start Designer or Photo. I have a large number of fonts installed but that's necessary to because I'm a font designer. I'm often dealing with font specimens and I need them all there. Is there are way to reduce loading lime besides reducing the number of installed fonts? Would it make much of a difference if it was installed on a SSD?
