Typeface v3.3.0

Reconnect external locations

For those of you that import fonts from an external location Typeface can now keep your locations and fonts imported even if the external location is disconnected. When you’ve imported fonts from a shared server and you’re on the go the fonts will not be accessible anymore. These missing fonts are normally removed automatically, but if you disable Preferences > Library > Remove Missing Fonts the fonts stay imported. Whenever the location is available again the fonts are reconnected and ready to be previewed right away.

And lots of other goodies to play with in this update. Use the new display toggles in the preview input modal to change preview settings such as alignment, font smoothing, outlines and more. A new underline display option has been added to preview something that needs some extra emphasis and protected system fonts are now recognizable by a small lock icon.

Have fun :)
