FontAgent® 9 for Windows includes a variety of new features and performance improvements to the World’s Smartest Font Manager.™ The new features give you the power to organize, discover, search and share your font collection through a powerful, familiar and customizable Windows interface.

All-New Tag Management and Sharing

FontAgent 9 includes all-new tagging functionality in its redesigned and enhanced Tags and Comments View, which provides powerful, streamlined management of keywords and descriptions. The new Tags and Comments view lets you see all tags assigned to fonts, and to add, delete and modify them in seconds. To make the process even easier, you can select multiple fonts and assign one or more tags to them in one action.

You can use tags to assign keywords that describe uses, topics, classifications, styles, categories — whatever you need to bring order and fast, sensible search to your font collection.

When users of FontAgent Sync, Server and CloudServer share fonts with other users, FontAgent automatically uploads their associated tags. So everyone can reap the rewards of your tagging and metadata strategies. It completely redefines how you think about deploying and using fonts across your organization.

Expanded Searching and Smart Sets

FontAgent’s Quick Search in V9 adds tags to its search-engine-like search of font names, comments, foundries, designers, trademarks, copyrights and more.

The new release also enables you to define searches for tag values and save the criteria as Smart Sets. So you can combine human judgment and font metrics into set definitions such as a set called Newsletter Headlines that includes all 5-star-rated fonts that are tagged headline and whose slant is regular. So handy.

Nested Sets

Back by popular demand, FontAgent supports nested sets so you can organize fonts hierarchically. Nested sets are particularly useful for organizing your fonts catalog by client, project, foundry or style.

Nested sets are sharable, so when you share a parent set with other FontAgent Sync and Server users, FontAgent shares the set definitions as well as the fonts in the parent and all its child subsets.

Subscription Font Services

Subscription fonts activated by Adobe Fonts and Monotype Fonts services and automatically appear in named sets in the Sets Sidebar of FontAgent. The new release even lets you activate and deactivate fonts, so you don’t need to use a separate activation tool from Adobe or Monotype.

FontAgent 9 for Windows adds new auto-activation support for InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator in Adobe Creative Cloud 2020.

Faster Font Viewing

The new release includes optimizations to its font-rendering engine for faster, more precise previews that give you the sharpness and speed you need to select fonts fast and accurately.
