updated 03:35 pm EDT, Tue March 31, 2009

FontExplorer X Pro, Server

Linotype, in collaboration with Monotype Imaging, has announced FontExplorer X Pro and FontExplorer X Server for the Mac. The software provides workgroup administrators with control over font management and access rights. Over 4,000 OpenType fonts are supplied from the Linotype, Monotype and ITC libraries.

FontExplorer X Pro lets users customize the activation and deactivation of fonts. The app sets up access to typefaces from typeface foundries, or any fonts tagged with a user-defined keyword, and can display complete character sets of fonts including the shapes and forms of individual characters. Also available is access to an online store, where users can browse and render typefaces in test strings before purchasing. Under activation settings, users have the ability to assign specific fonts to open when launching InDesign, Illustrator or QuarkXPress.

FontExplorer X Server combines Pro features with network administration capabilities. Users can distribute fonts and font sets over a network, with customized settings for local use. Administrators can additionally monitor and compare font usage, remove any undesired fonts, and organize fonts around specific job types and projects, with unique group and individual privileges.

The Pro and Server versions of FontExplorer X are compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later. Pro is currently priced at $80, while the cost of Server is based on an annual subscription and varies depending on the number of users.
