  • Define multiple font libraries that can be opened simultaneously
  • Define font sets across multiple font libraries
  • Activate and deactivate sets of fonts simultaneously from multiple libraries
  • Rename font files
  • Verify fonts on the fly

FontAgent Pro supports for PostScript Type 1, Macintosh and Windows TrueType fonts, OS X dfonts and OpenType fonts.


The full version of FontAgent Pro sells for $99.95 and is expected to be released in November for the Mac. The public beta is available now as a free download. For more information, visit http://www.insidersoftware.com.
