Cutover Day

Today is the day all the Crux links redirect to these pages here in my personal site. Let me know if there are any problems.

I expect most people landing here will be Font Runner users. Don’t worry, guys and gals, Font Runner is still available.

    Love Font Runner.
    Is there an easy way to install and uninstall a font? I don’t need a font permanently installed, only for a short period.

    Many thanks.

      Oops, sorry for the delayed response. I almost missed this comment. I’m still getting used to running this site. It’s a great deal more dynamic than my old Crux site.

      You can right-click on the font to install it. Uninstalling it cannot be done directly with Font Runner. When you go to the Windows Font folder with Font Runner, there is an “Open with Windows Explorer” button. Use that and use Microsoft’s Explorer window to delete the font.

      While it might seem straightforward to handle this in Font Runner, it produced many side-effect bugs. I spent a lot of time trying to perfect it before giving up and putting in a shortcut to the built-in Windows Font manager.

    I have had Font Runner on my xp’s for a long while now, great program. But when moving the font directory over to win 7 platform and installing the latest Font Runner version I can only see some, but not all fonts anymore. (The fonts are listed) Any special trick to actually see the fonts?

      Are the fonts something other than TTF or OTF? Font Runner is dependent on Windows for certain aspects of font management and I seem to recall that some older formats did not work correctly when Vista was released. I saw this happen in Photoshop, actually. The Windows Fonts folder was showing the font, but Photoshop could not see it. Is this possibly the cause?
