FontCatalog 1.0, a font browser/manager for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x from PrePress Consolidated Color, was released on Monday. Targeted to graphics professionals, the US$29.95 software shows your fonts grouped by categories and can be used to activate new fonts through a menu or by means of drag-and-drop.
FontCatalog also sports a “Similar…” button that you can click to search your hard drive for fonts are similar to each other. The utility utilizes a database of font family names indexed by categories: Text Sans Serif, Text Serif, Display, Script and Art&Pi. Each category has four Style sub-divisions.
A demo of FontCatalog is available from PrePress Consolidated Color. The trial version allows 10 evaluation runs of the software.
