FontAgent 8.7, the font repair and management utility, is now available from Insider Software. The new version adds new facilities for finding quick answers to font problems, Mac OS X performance enhancements and fixes for handling very large font libraries, according to Rio Sabadicci, president of Insider Software.
The new FontAgent improves its support and feedback facilities to help users solve font management issues, he said in announcing the new version. The new features include improved error messages that pinpoint problems and offer solutions.
The new FontAgent also scans font files 30 percent faster on systems with Mac OS X by "intelligently avoiding" the operating system's hidden files and directories when searching for font files, Sabadicci added.
Insider FontAgent 8.7 is available for download from Insider's Web site and is free for users who have licensed earlier versions of FontAgent. For new users, FontAgent costs US$69.95. You can download FontAgent software and test your fonts for free, then repair and re-organize them by purchasing a FontAgent license.
