Fonts automatically activated in InDesign
Insider Software has released a series of FontAgent Pro plug-ins for Adobe's Creative Suite 5 suite of applications. The new plug-ins automatically activate fonts used in documents as they are opened in CS5 programs such as InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop.
The company's FontSavant system provides notifications to activate a different font if the wrong font was used in the creation of a document. The conflict resolver gives users control over the activation process, while providing a proximity ranking that outlines slight differences between fonts.
The new plug-ins require FontAgent Pro 4 for correct activation. FontAgent Pro 4 upgrades are available for prices ranging from $50 to $65 depending on the edition, while new customers can purchase the basic software for $100.
