I have used SF4 with the «Copy added fonts to the Vault» preference checked. My mother tongue being French, I assumed that «copy» meant «make a duplicate» in the Vault, and english dictionaries seem to agree with that definition. Yet, I found the originals disappeared from the carefully arranged folder structure I developed over 20 years. Understand me: I’m talking about thousands of fonts (mine and those of my customers) that moved instead of being copied.
How do I undo this mess? I am sure that I’m not the only one with this problem: has anything been done to address this problem and correct this situation? If anyone has an answer (even partial), please answer me. I can’t believe I’ve wasted so much time without knowing. This certainly offsets the time savings of font management software…
Thanks to all,
