XChange announce availability of FontAgent Pro v3.2 XTension compatible with QuarkXPress 7 for MacintoshAutomatically locates and activates the fonts that are required in any QuarkXPress 7 document (June 29, 2006)
XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide are pleased to announce the availability of the FontAgent Pro auto-activation XTension for QuarkXPress v7 for Macintosh. The FontAgent Pro auto-activation XTension automatically locates and activates the fonts that are required in any QuarkXPress 7 document. This updated XTension software for QuarkXPress is available at no additional charge to licensed users of FontAgent Pro, the leading utility for Mac OS X font management, diagnostics, optimisation and repair.
FontAgent Pro is Jaguar®, Panther® and Tiger® compatible, provides cutting-edge features to maintain font integrity, lets users easily preview and print font books, and share fonts within a workgroup < without a server. Using FontAgent Pro, with a few clicks users can repair, optimise and organise their fontsS then build font libraries and cascading sets. The product is indispensable for maintaining font integrity as well as restoring system stability and performance. The product also allows for the prevention of unauthorised font changes.
FontAgent Pro delivers drag-and-drop simplicity that enables users to stop unpredictable font behaviour by discovering problem fonts, and eliminates crashes by removing corrupt font files. Users can build and view any number of optimised and organised font libraries, as well as define sets of fonts that make managing projects and documents a snap. FontAgent Pro allows for activation of only the fonts needed for the current projects, saving system resources and simplifying font menus. FontAgent Pro is a 100% Cocoa application built from the ground up for Macintosh OS X.
FontAgent Pro quickly locates all font files in user-definable locations. It enables the user to easily scan folders, hard drives, CDs, networked Macs, and Windows volumes. FontAgent Pro sorts fonts and automatically removes unmatched fonts, duplicate fonts, and more. These incomplete fonts go into a problem-fonts folder, enabling users to review problem fonts at their leisure. FontAgent Pro intelligently compares comprehensive font information to determine exact duplicates and keeps the most complete or newest font. It even keeps fonts from different foundries and fonts in both Type 1 and TrueType formats. In addition, FontAgent Pro removes redundant font data and extra point sizes which means fonts use less system resources.
FontAgent Pro builds clean, organised font libraries, and then maintains those libraries. After optimising the fonts, it places an entire font family in its own folder, and places that folder in the appropriate alphabetical folder, all contained in the font library¹s folder. There are no no font Osuitcases¹ in Mac OS X, so FontAgent Pro breaks up the old suitcase files into multiple font files and labels the files with the font¹s name and style, the preferred file format for Mac OS X. Crucially, FontAgent Pro¹s libraries are accessible from the Finder so users still have access to physical font files.
System Requirements: Macintosh with G4 processor or better running Mac OS 10.3.6 or higher 100 Base-T Ethernet (or better) or AirPort (802.11g) network connection for the Workgroup Edition
