At booth #2511 during
Macworld Conference & Expo, Insider Software is showing off its new FontAgent Pro 2 and FontAgent Pro 2 Workgroup Edition products, which are available now for US$99.95 ($89.95 for electronic download) and $149.95 ($139.95 for electronic download), respectively.
FontAgent Pro helps you organize, optimize, repair, and manage your fonts. It allows you to repair or delete corrupt and duplicate fonts as well as unneeded point sizes and font libraries. You can display your fonts in WYSIWYG mode and preview them in different typefaces, and FontPlayer lets you display and preview text in context, complete with modification of font colors, backgrounds, and point sizes. It also automatically activates fonts in Panther-compliant applications and features plug-ins for Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, as well as QuarkXPress.
The Workgroup Edition uses Rendezvous to allow you to view and use other users’ fonts, thanks to Insider’s Fontez-Vous technology. The company’s CMO, Bob Leeds, says that “FontAgent Pro WE is the perfect solution for design professionals who need to share their font resources, but don’t want to waste time on server administration, configuration, and maintenance.”
