Sharing font library between pc:s

Postby Bluesman » Wed Apr 26, 2017 8:53 am

Hi, Which is the best way of sharing your "FontExpert" settings between 2 pc:s? I have one at home and one at my office in which I work with the same projects. As it is...I've copied the same font folder which is my external library in the same place in both OS. I want to have the same organization and all the settings that I do in one "FE" software to be transferred to the other so I don't have to do any double work on this. Is there a way?

Gracias
Bluesman

The recommended way in this version is to create full backup and restore the backup on another computer. Or if the set of fonts is the same on all computers and you only need to synchronize keywords and other tags, you can Export Tags... and Import Tags... on anorher computer. (In version 14 tags are linked to uniquie font id. For a given font the font id will be the same on all computers.)
But the best way to share Library fonts and Groups should be the solution we are developing at this time.
