If you work in design, publishing, web content and any of numerous other fields, there’s a chance that you need a tool to help you to better manage your font collections. You probably have a huge number of fonts at your disposal, but it can be somewhat impractical to have them all installed and available at any one time. FontExplorer X Pro is an advanced font management tool that can be used to keep on top of your library on both Mac and PC.
The program can be used in a number of ways, but the library organization options are going to appeal to almost everyone. Fonts can be grouped in whatever way you deem most apt, and tags can be used to make it easier to find what you are looking for. It is likely that you only use certain fonts when you are working in particular programs, and to this end FontExplorer X Pro can be configured to automatically activate individual fonts or families when you launch a certain application.
When you are managing your library in a more hands on fashion, the program provides you with a wealth of tools and information. At its most basic you can use the software to view a list of all of your avaiolbale fonts, complete with a preview of how character sets look. To help ensure that the performance of your system is maximized, fonts that are no longer in use are quickly deactivated, caches are cleared and conflicts are resolved.
This is a professional tool and it has a fairly professional price tag attached to it. This is not a criticism as FontExplorer X Pro manages to justify every cent of the asking price. Mac users have access to an integrated font store, but both Mac and Windows users are equipping themselves with a seriously useful tool when they invest in FontExplorer X Pro.
