FontAgent Pro can help users eliminate corrupt fonts, partial and unmatched fonts, duplicates, unnecessary point sizes, and generate optimized and organized font libraries. You can also use FontAgent Pro to build font libraries and sets, deactivate or activate them as necessary, preview them, and keep open only the fonts you need for current projects. Insider Software bills FontAgent Pro as the “first and only font-management Cocoa application on the market.” The software is optimized for Mac OS X 10.2, Jaguar.
Other features in FontAgent Pro include multiple font libraries that can be opened simultaneously; renaming font files with meaningful names; verify fonts on the fly; reorganize scattered fonts into libraries; analysis and repair of damaged and corrupt fonts; viewing font lists in their actual typefaces; find fonts using the first few letters of their names; automatic view of custom text in sequential font lists; and printing of fonts in any text and style.
FontAgent Pro calls for Mac OS X 10.2 or later, 3MB disk space, 7MB RAM. It costs US$99.95 and is available for download from Insider Software’s Web site. Upgrades from previous FontAgent products are available, as is a trial version.
