Backing Up Mapped Fonts

Once I have mapped fonts in AlphaTricks can I then change the location of the original font files? And when it comes to backing up the AlphaTricks font files do I just need to copy the contents of the "Imported" folder?



I too love AlphaTricks!!!!

Hi JoAnn!

When you import the fonts, they are added to the program internally! So you can remove the original designs and put them on a backup disk or move them anywhere you want!

Some people save the fonts to their desktop, map them, then move them to their back up disk!

YES if you save your Imported folder (you'll see all the BL and BF file in there) you can just copy this to the SAME LOCATION on another computer and all your fonts will be in the program.

Thanks Lisa!!

That is what I thought but wanted to confirm before I try.

Thanks again

I was just looking for where the program saves the fonts and thought I knew where it was, but was wrong! Only the fonts that came with the program are saved where I was thinking. How can I find all the fonts I have mapped in?
