Kate MacKenzie echoes my belief on two fronts regarding fonts for the Mac.
Thank the digital gods that we live in the golden era of fonts where they are both plentiful, inexpensive, easy to obtain, and of the highest quality ever (subjective analysis included). That brings me to an issue that most Mac users seldom know about, but those of us in graphic design and media production know all to well.
Managing fonts is a royal pain.
Enter Typeface, possibly the best new Mac app I’ve run into this year. Frankly, Typeface is the app Apple should use instead of FontBook. It’s as simple and uncomplicated as FontBook but does more, including collecting fonts into groups, and deactivating or activating fonts with a simple right-click.
