Insider releases TypeTrax
Insider Software (Booth No. 526) has announced TypeTrax, a new product for managing design projects created using Adobe Creative Suite. Developed jointly by Insider and Moksa, TypeTrax manages projects, and tracks, organizes and pre-flights project files, including fonts and digital assets. The software is fully integrated with Canto's Cumulus digital asset management and allows users to simply drag a document into Cumulus: TypeTrax automatically detects and displays the project's font resources in WYSIWYG mode. TypeTrax also provides full access to font metadata and the ability to view native fonts and associated font data from within Cumulus.
In addition, it provides automatic preflight functions when a user checks out an InDesign document -- checking for fonts, images and all associated resources files that are needed to properly output the job.
TypeTrax is $100 per workstation and will be available directly from Insider Software as well as resellers worldwide; it requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and supports all Mac OS X fonts, including Open Type, Type 1, dfont, and Mac and Windows TrueType. Canto Cumulus 7.0 or later and FontAgent Pro version 4.0 or later are also required.
