FontExplorer X

Version: 1.2.3 || Release Date: 2008-02-11 || License: Commercial with demo (€79) Developer: Linotype | App Owner: arne

FontExplorer X sets a new standard for font management software. After several relatively sad years for all font users who were looking for a professional font manager, Linotype is pleased to fill the gap with the new FontExplorer X. Font management has never been so simple, and font sorting, font shopping and font discovery are now more fun than ever. FontExplorer X gives computer users all the font functions they could need, and lets them decide how deeply they wish to dive into various font themes.

The online support is killer. Browse the entire Linotype library and shows live previews. Amazing

This application has some minor UI issues under Leopard.

I, too, wish there were a way to manually move fonts into the family they belong in. That said, it's the only font manager I use (or need) anymore.

I've got 7000+ (thanks, Bittorrent) loaded and it keeps on like a champ. I really, really have to go through and sort this crap out though.

i agree about the ability to group fonts into families manually...
also, does anyone use fontexplorer with libraries of thousands of fonts (say over 3000 or more)? how does it perform?

I wish there was a way to fix files where the fonts have somehow been seperated the fonts into several families even though they're the same family.

has to be in my top 5 peices of freeware i have on my macs, the best thing since ATM for font management and 100% better.

This made my Suitcase wound stop bleeding.

Bought 5 copies of Suitcase at work. Everyone uses this instead... it's so good.

I was skeptical of a free type manager at first, but after using at the office to replace Extensis Font Reserve (a complete piece of garbage), I haven't looked back. It's fast, easy to use, and has great features (auto-activation, etc.). Linking to the Linotype store is interesting as well. It's a great way for them to get more exposure and sales, all while keeping the app free.
