InDesign Font Catalog

by Fred Showker

InDesign Font Catalog Chris Paveglio has released a new version of InDesign Font Catalog, a program for making visual catalogs of font families and their styles. ID Font Catalog is unique from other font display apps by grouping font families together, and making a short list of each style. Version 2 is completely rewritten, and includes a user-definable "skip list" of fonts to omit form the catalog, and 3 new document templates. (view)

InDesign Font Catalog version 2 is a major update to the application. ID Font Catalog creates a catalog of every font a user has, using Adobe InDesign. It is unique from other font catalog applications because it groups fonts by their family, and only shows each font "style" in a short list.

Graphic designers and artists with a large list of fonts appreciate seeing a list of fonts in a compact style. In version 2, the primary addition is the user definable "Font Skip List" where a user can omit certain fonts from the catalog, for example foreign fonts (Chinese, Japanese, Cyrillic) can be skipped even though OS X installs some of these fonts by default.

 InDesign Font CatalogOther additions include 3 new document styles, for professional looking and functional type samples; the option to choose any InDesign document preset for making a catalog (Single Paragraph style only); and a completely rewritten core for better performance and reliability.
