FontAgent Pro Selected #1 Font Manager by MacWorld Germany
Macworld Germany (Macwelt) has selected FontAgent Pro the top-rated Macintosh font manager over Extensis Suitcase Fusion 2 and Monotype Imaging's Font Explorer X Pro 2 in its review of Mac OS X font managers.
The Macworld test environment was a 2.26GHz Mac Mini with 4 GB of memory. The reviewers tested each font manager running Adobe InDesign CS3 and CS4; QuarkXPress 8; Microsoft Word 2008; Apple Pages 09, Numbers 09 and TextEdit; and Nisus Writer Express. The Macworld tests grade each font manager for its range of functionality, operation, user interface, practical use, localization and documentation.
In the review, Macworld cited FontAgent Pro advantages over its competitors in a number of areas, including:
- Font activation more than seven times faster than Suitcase Fusion
- Absence of problem during use
- Many auto-activation plug-ins
- Low-key, transparent operation that works quietly in the background
- Completion if font activation in all test areas quickly and without problems
As a result of its dependable operation, activation power and efficient performance, FontAgent Pro was named "Winner of the Test" and was the editor's choice as the #1 Macintosh font manager.
