Choosing between a default Mac utility and a more powerful third party client is always difficult. Tighter system integration and the “free” aspect are on your side with the built-in tool, but there’s often a shortage of the kind of powerful features that a freestanding application offers.
Font management is a perfect example of this. Font Book is a decent way to manage your fonts, but creative professionals and anyone else who deals with fonts daily might find it fairly lacking.
Today we want to know how you manage your font library. Do you use third party software or have you stuck with the tools that Apple has provided? Cast your vote above, then leave a comment letting us know which font management apps you’ve tried and which you like the best.
When we first reviewed Fontcase over a year ago, one of the things we said we’d like to see was auto-activation. If you take a look at the comments on that review, you will see that several readers agreed, and one or two said very plainly that this was a deal-breaker for them. So long as Fontcase, for all its obvious beauty and other great features, didn’t offer auto-activation, they would stick with whatever they were using already.
Well, happy day! Bohemian Coding have recently released a new version of Fontcase, which includes a few important changes and improvements.
