High-Logic B.V.'s MainType was named the winner of the 2012 Epsilon Award for software excellence at the 12th annual European Software Conference. Each year, The Epsilon Award recognizes the best software application from the European software and microISV community.
MainType takes the frustration out of managing your Windows fonts. Using drag and drop, MainType lets you find, preview, organize, install, and print your fonts. Unlike simple font preview applications, MainType is designed for graphic artists, typographers, and other power users who demand high-end functionality such as network support, plug-ins, advanced categorizing and searching capabilities, and fast searches for the fonts that they need.
The new database structure allows MainType to start processing fonts immediately, and results in substantially improved processing speed, even on systems with tens of thousands of fonts. The database design makes it simple to back up and restore your font library. Network support allows access to fonts that are stored on a network drive.
MainType 5 runs under Windows 8/7/Vista/XP/2003/2000, and costs $39(US) for a single-user license of the Standard Edition and $79 for the Professional Edition. For more information, contact High-Logic B.V., Tuinstraat 60, 3732 VM De Bilt, The Netherlands. www.high-logic.com.
The Epsilon Award's second-place winner was Cosmin Unguru's BatchPhoto.
The 13th annual European Software Conference will be held November 2nd and 3rd, 2013 in Venice, Italy.
