Font Tools 7.0 released
Veenix Software today released Font Tools 7.0, an update to its integrated Mac OS X tools for previewing, printing, organizing, and working with fonts. The latest release adds a new font preview pane in the Visual Font Database window, which is collapsible and customizable offering a quick way to sample a word or phrase through many fonts. Font Tools 7.0 also introduces several new built-in auto-detection font categories designed for inline and outline fonts, shadow and fonts, math and pi fonts, expert and fraction fonts, and small and drop cap fonts. Veenix Font Tools is priced at $70, and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
A new user-elective feature automatically identifies and categorizes image, picture, symbol, dingbat, and graphic fonts. Further new features include color-coded layouts in Type Book Creator, batch categorization of fonts in Document Font Tools, selective sample deletion in the Font Comparison window, several new preference options, and other user interface enhancements.
