Known issues

  • Please backup your profiles before upgrading!

  • Only Chinese simplified/Traditional and English are fully localized, some options may missing in MacType Tuner due to the strings missing in the language file. You can help with translations!

  • If you want to use MacType-patch together with MacType official release, remember to add DirectWrite=0 to your profile or you will have mysterious problems

  • If you're running 64 bit Windows, antimalware/antivirus software may conflict with MacType, because it sees MacType trying to modify running software. One possible workaround is to try running in Service Mode (recommended), or add HookChildProcesses=0 to your profile. See https://github.com/snowie2000/mactype/wiki/HookChildProcesses for an explanation

  • Office 2013 does not use DirectWrite or GDI (it uses its own custom rendering), so Office 2013 doesn't work with MacType. If this bothers you you can use Office 2010 which uses GDI or Office 2016+ which uses DirectWrite.

  • WPS has a builtin defense that UNLOADS MacType automatically which can't be turned off. Please contact its software support for solution. We won't to anything to walkaround it.

How to get regitry mode back

It is no longer possible to enable registry mode via the wizard in Windows 10.

We have a detailed guide on how you can enable the registry mode manually in wiki, get your screwdrivers ready before you head over to it.
