BKeeney Software, Inc. has launched an updated version of Font Pilot, a font management software program for Mac OS X that allows users to preview fonts on the computer. The new version 2.4.3 has many enhancements to allow for easier and faster application of fonts.
With this maintenance release, the new modifications of Font Pilot allow users to preview fonts faster and now supports files that contain multiple fonts. The program has improved stability when previewing, activating, and installing fonts, and loads fonts faster when the program is first activated. Also, the Waterfall displays all the letters with the correct size and all the size labels are now visible.
Font Pilot allows users to view their collection of fonts, as well as uninstalled fonts, quickly and easily. Using its superior font management engine, Font Pilot searches for copyrights, licenses, descriptions, postscript names, file sizes, locations, and much more on individual fonts in your font library. Font Pilot allows you to browse an entire folder of fonts that are not installed with a visual preview function.
While viewing the slideshow of fonts, click the 'install' button at any time to have that font permanently installed and activated on the computer. Included amongst these great features, are numerous others such as the character map, key combo list, and print engine. Font Pilot is an essential font management software tool in any creative or graphic designer's repertoire. Font is available online for $15.95 (USD) and may be purchased by visiting their website. A free 14-day trail is also available for download.
BKeeney Software products also include Task Timer, an easy-to-use project management tool that allows users to track time spent on an unlimited number of projects and tasks; Slideshow Magic, a multimedia production and presentation tool; and a file management program called File Sheriff.
