Help for newbie

I'm trying out Font Expert because I need to get some fonts ready so I can use the Missing Font Loader in Adobe Illustrator.

I've looked at the documentation and tried to figure it out, but with no success. I need to figure out if this will actually work right away so I really appreciate getting some help.

I need the steps I need to get a font, say Calibri, ready for the Missing Font Loader API.

Thanks in advance!
Roger

Automatic activation/deactivation is supported by FontExpert and you also
need to install special plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5 (not
supported yet (on July 31, 2012): Adobe InDesign CS5.5 and CS6) and Adobe Illustrator CS5.

1) Install FontExpert
2) Install plug-in for InDesign or Illustrator

3) Also, you must add the fonts being activated to any folder within
FontExpert Groups root folder (to any subfolder on any level).

FontExpert font manager does not have a feature to identify fonts from an image sample. Some time ago was an application with the same name (FontExpert) that identified fonts.
