What are the minimum requirements for running RoboFont?

  • Hi,

    I have a MacBookPro11,1 with a 2,6GHz processor and 8GB RAM and RoboFont feels a little slow or janky when just open a glyph and panning around with the trackpad, doesn't feel fast, precise and responsive like FontLab VI or Glyphs. And “Mechanic 2” gives me the spinning beachball. I wonder if my little machine here is just too old?

    Oh, and I am running the trial version of RoboFont 3.1 and 4 extensions:

    1. Curve Equalizer
    2. Glyph Nanny
    3. Red Arrow
    4. Scaling Edit Tool

    I use an old MacBook Air (1,7 GHz / 4 GB) and everything works just fine…

    which versions of macOS and RoboFont are you using?

  • I’m using macOS 10.14 Mojave.

    @d7yrr ok. as I suspected 🙂

    there’s an issue with the latest build in macOS Mojave; @frederik is looking into it. a warning for Mojave users has been added to the Downloads page.

    please try using one of the previous builds – that should fix the performance problems you are experiencing.

    thanks for reporting it. let us know if you still have any problems.
