The app shows an error message when trying to restore my purchase
When restoring purchases the app communicates with the Mac App Store to retrieve your purchase receipts. If the app isn’t able to connect to the App Store to get the latest data, or something else unexpected happens your purchase may not be restored.
You can restart your Mac to see if that resolves the issue. After restarting try to restore your purchase again.
If that doesn’t unlock the app please follow these steps:
- Quit Typeface
- Remove Typeface.app from the /Applications folder on your Mac
- Download Typeface again from the Mac App Store
Your fonts, tags and other data will remain available if you just remove the .app from Applications. Do not use an app cleaner to remove the app, as that will also remove user data.
If you you still can’t unlock the app please contact support by choosing> from the main menu.
