You Software ships You Control:Fonts

Font menu displays fonts in their own typeface and font family groups (July 07, 2004)

Today You Software shipped You Control:Fonts, a software utility that lets you create a WYSIWYG font menu in Mac OS X. Built upon the award-winning You Control custom menu utility, You Control:Fonts allows you to create a custom font menu that makes it easier to find your fonts by displaying fonts in their own typeface and grouping them by font family thus reducing the size of your font menu.

You Control:Fonts makes it easy to see all of the fonts currently activated on your computer in their own typeface including an optional waterfall preview, even if you use thousands of fonts. You can see and select the perfect font for your document or design in your favorite applications.

With You Control:Fonts, you get a single font menu that is consistent across all of your favorite applications. Rather than modifying the font menu that belongs to an application, the You Control:Fonts menu resides in the Mac OS X menu bar next to your default system menu items. Users of You Control have the option to integrate You Control:Fonts into You Control as a module allowing for a wide range of options for where the font menu can be accessed.

You Control:Fonts is the first font menu utility that supports both the new Cocoa-style applications as well as Carbon-based applications like Adobe Photoshop. You Control:Fonts supports the following applications.

? Adobe Photoshop CS
? Adobe Illustrator CS
? Adobe InDesign CS
? QuarkXPress 6.0
? Macromedia Freehand 10
? Macromedia Freehand MX
? Macromedia Flash MX
? Macromedia Fireworks MX
? Microsoft Word v.X
? Microsoft Word 2004
? Microsoft Excel 2004
? Microsoft PowerPoint 2004
? Keynote
? TextEdit

"The new You Control:Fonts extends the power and flexibility of You Control for creative professionals or anyone who works with numerous fonts.," said Mike Wong, Director of Macintosh Products for You Software.
