[prMac.com] Los Gatos, California - Insider Software today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of FontAgent Pro 4.140 for Macintosh. With this release, FontAgent Pro provides 64 bit support for Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop CS5. The result of Insider Software's implementation of 64-bit architecture support is a dramatic increase in performance and auto-activation speed. This release further enhances Insider's industry-leading, precision font selection and auto-activation.
Industry-Leading Auto-Activation Speed Now Even Faster:
The new release of FontAgent Pro includes an all-new, 64-bit framework and improved plug-ins for Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop CS5 for Leopard and Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6).
Unique Technology that Ensures Correct Activation:
The latest release provides fast and accurate auto-activation for Adobe Creative Suite 5 using Insider' s unique FontSavant(TM) technology that ensures that auto-activation always selects the right fonts in your documents - not just a close match or a font that has the same name.
Auto-Activation Done Right:
Only FontAgent Pro gives you full control over the font auto-activation process. Insider's FontSavant technology detects even the most subtle differences among fonts to deliver the most accurate font activation possible. When no installed fonts match one required by a document, MagicMatch(TM) provides a list of alternate fonts in a designer's collection - with a relevancy ranking that shows how closely they match the requested font - so designers can choose the best font for the design task. Users can also automatically activate a preferred version of a font if an incorrect font was used in creating a document.
Universal Binary Support on All Hardware:
All FontAgent Pro auto-activation plug-ins offer universal binary support for optimal performance on Intel machines as well as PowerPC hardware.
FontAgent Pro 4 for Macintosh requires Mac OS X version 10.4 or later, and 15 MB of memory. FontAgent Pro Server 4.0 requires Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or later and 80 MB of memory.
Pricing and Availability:
Release 4.140 of FontAgent Pro is free to users who have already licensed FontAgent Pro 4 and includes free CS5 plug-ins. The product retails for $99.95 for new purchasers and is $49.95 for registered users of FontAgent Pro 3 and earlier. Cross-grades from qualifying competitive products are also available. Existing users and those wanting a 30-day trial version of FontAgent Pro can download the latest release from Insider Software online.
About FontAgent Pro:
FontAgent Pro provides a complete font management system that integrates diagnostics, repair, font selection, font book creation, and design tools in a single powerful, yet simple application for creative professionals. It is the only product to offer such modern features as multiple font libraries, a customizable user interface, live font search, WYSIWYG font viewing, concept searching and a Font Player(TM) that delivers interactive font selection and one-click font book creation. Using FontAgent Pro, administrators can also prohibit unauthorized modifications to font libraries and sets, define multiple startup sets to boost usability, and enable font activation without launching FontAgent Pro.
Three Editions Provide Choice for Users:
FontAgent Pro is available in a standalone desktop edition; a workgroup edition that shares fonts among users without requiring a server or special configuration; and the FontAgent Pro Connected Edition that connects to FontAgent Pro Server to provide maximum font consistency and control across an enterprise. FontAgent Pro Server enables IT managers and system administrators to automate the process of distributing and updating fonts and maintaining font licenses, while providing the control necessary to ensure that the work-flow runs smoothly.
