Smasher streamlines font suitcases and cleans font caches to eliminate a variety of common font problems and improve the performance of Mac OS X systems. Smasher enables users to view all fonts in a suitcase--including legacy Mac OS 9 suitcases that may contain numerous fonts from a multitude of families and foundries--and "smash" the suitcases into their smallest components. Smasher automatically creates new, more efficient and manageable suitcases.
