Linotype FontExplorer X for Mac
By default, the Mac OS X Font Book application enables you to both install and manage fonts, but keeping track of large typeface collections this way might prove to be quite challenging.
Linotype FontExplorer X proposes a well organized environment where you can view and group fonts into various collections, you get to decide which ones you want active, and you are able to download new typefaces from the Linotype font store.
User friendly font management solution that works right out of the box
The first time you launch Linotype FontExplorer X, the application offers to scan locations on your disk that are usually containing your fonts collections. What’s more, you get to add new folders to that list, in case you are storing typefaces in custom locations.
As a result, when you open the Linotype FontExplorer X app for the first time, you get to quickly browse your entire fonts library. Note that when system fonts are concerned, Linotype FontExplorer X allows you to see the ones that are available for all users, for a specific user, or for the system.
Effortlessly browse the Linotype store and buy new typefaces
To facilitate the installation of new fonts, Linotype FontExplorer X allows you to browse the Linotype font store within its interface, and can even connect to your store account. This way, you get to quickly add new items to your favorites list or to the cart with minimal effort.
Furthermore, the Linotype FontExplorer X application can also handle the checkout process: you can buy and download new fonts in a very streamlined manner.
Powerful font management solution that integrates with third party applications
All in all, if you are dealing with large fonts collections, Linotype FontExplorer X can prove to be a very efficient software solution: you get to group the typefaces together with simple drag and drop actions, and activate or deactivate them with one mouse click.
To improve your productivity further, Linotype FontExplorer X comes with integration plug-ins for some of the most popular digital publishing suites, such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, or QuarkXPress.
